RHAMNACEAE, The Buckthorn family
This is a strange tree with pretty heart-shaped leaves and graceful twigs. I like the name of it. The fruit is actually the receptacle or stem of the fruit, but I never seen it. In spring it has fragrant white flowers. Northwoods/One Green World grows this tree for the nursery, and I’m planning to put it in the display I’m making to get ready for the edible landscaping seminar I’m doing this fall.
