American Bladdernut Report

American Bladdernut
Staphylea trifolia L.
 has interesting fruit. They grow in a 3 sided bladder. 
The seeds could be collected and grouped to make a rattling sound.

Leaves are toothed coming to a point at the tip. 

The trees do well in partial shade, but this tree seems to be thriving in the open sun.

This tree is a thicket forming shrub that can grow up to 25'. Planted occasionally as an ornamental. I don't see the tree often and was glad to come across this one.


My time in nature is always good. I trust the Lord for His protection and comfort. 

Psalm 119:165
Those who love Your law have great peace, And nothing causes them to stumble.

Proverbs 3:23
Then you will walk in your way securely And your foot will not stumble.

Isaiah 63:13
Who led them through the depths? Like the horse in the wilderness, they did not stumble;

1 John 2:10
The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him.
