Bladder Nut (Staphylea colchica)

Bladder Nut, Staphylea colchica

Planted  a few months ago in the border at the bottom of the quad, the Bladder Nut, Staphylea colchica, has started to produce unusual bladder shaped, greenish-white capsules. This upright, deciduous shrub produces panicles of fragrant white flowers followed by these 'Bladder Nut' capsules, another great addition to the college gardens.
