STAPHYLEA

FLOWERING SHRUB. The bladder nut, as it is popularly called, bears creamy-white, star-like drooping blossom on a 4 ft. plant, during May and June. The bladder-like seed vessels are very conspicuous. Height about 12 ft.

Staphylea pinnata is sometimes referred to as Job’s tears. A warm, sheltered position is necessary but the plant is not fussy regarding soil. Cuttings of side shoots can be taken in July.
