These are ornamental, deciduous shrubs or small trees of north temperate regions, with opposite, compound leaves, clusters of whitish flowers and bladderlike fruits. Rarely found in cultivation. Tolerate full sun to part shade.
From China, Korea and Japan growing in woods and by streams. This species is smaller in all respects than our native Bladdernut. A spreading upright habit with glabrous grey-brown branches and elegant, trifoliate leaves. White flowers in short, loose terminal clusters after the leaves appear in spring. Foliage provides lovely red tints in the autumn. Small inflated seed pods are wonderful late into the season, particularly after the leaves fall. Any soil, sun to part shade. Rare in the trade. Only a few packs.
Requires cold treatment.
