Staphylea pinnata is a small shrub with coconut scented, white flowers in May, followed by fluffy fruit pods (hence the name). At first the fruit pods have a purple hue which then gradually fades to a hay, brown colour in the Autumn. The Common Bladdernut is easy to grow (even in a pot), drought tolerant and it won't grow bigger than 2m in height.
