Euscaphis japonica

Korean Sweetheart Tree

Euscaphis japonica is called the Korean Sweetheart Tree because of its rose red fruit pods which look like little hearts as they open.  The broad ivory yellow flower panicles appear in June, and are followed by the showy fruit displayed August through September.  When the red pods open, they are made even more showy by revealing large shiny blue-black seeds.  The bark is also attractive, with white striations on the purplish brown coloration.  This was one of Dr JC Raulston's favorite exotic tree introductions.
