American Bladdernut

A small, sparsely branched, colony-forming tree with dark green lightly serrated leaves that grows in moist areas along streams and in drainages.  The compound leaves have groups of three lance-shaped leaflets.  Drooping clusters of white bell-shaped flowers that resemble those of blueberries bloom in the early Spring.  The flowers are followed by inflated, papery green seed capsules.  Will spread and sprout multiple trunks through root suckering, especially in moist areas.
