Présentation détaillée

Staphylea Colchica, a shrub who does not miss of originality.

Staphylea Colchica or Caucasian bladdernut is a beautiful upright shrub from the Caucasus. Its deciduous leaves, finely toothed, of pure green color, turn to ocher in autumn. In spring, the Caucasian bladdernut fascinates with its abundant white flowers, arranged in drooping panicles, delicately scented. A real treat for bees ! In buds, they can be tasted and have a taste similar to capers. From April, they emit a sweet fragrance that embellishes the entire garden. But what surprises most is its curious fruits, very decorative, which appear in autumn. They have a form of bulging capsules, three compartments that are reminiscent of Japanese lanterns. Inside these capsules, we discover edible brown seeds, the size of a pea. Grilled, they are eaten like pistachios.

Very robust and frost-resistant, the Caucasian bladdernut can handle temperatures from -15 to -18 ° C. It is very easy to grow and requires little care, only a maintenance pruning. He likes the sun or half-shade in a neutral, well-drained soil. Staphylea Colchica grows fairly quickly. In adulthood, it can measure 3 meters in height and reach 3 meters wingspan.

Planted alone or in a shrubbery, Staphylea Colchica will be the most beautiful effect in your garden.
