Bladdernut, shrub or small tree
A fast-growing, hardy shrub or small tree great for rain or shade gardens as well as woody areas. Beautiful drooping clusters of white flowers in spring and bladder-shaped, papery seed capsules attract pollinators, create winter interest and look great in dried-flower arrangements.
