A small, sparsely branched, colony-forming tree with dark green leaves that grows in moist areas along streams and in drainages. The compound leaves have groups of three lance-shaped leaflets with lighly serrated margins. Drooping clusters of white, bell-shaped flowers that resemble those of blueberries bloom in the early Spring. The flowers are followed by inflated, papery green seed capsules with multiple seeds rattling around inside. Will spread and sprout multiple trunks through root suckering, especially in moist areas.
