Leitneria floridana
Leitneria floridana
Common Name: Corkwood
This rare shrub is found in the boot heel of Missouri. In early spring, showy catkins appear followed by simple, thick, dark, shiny-green leaves with heavy vein patterns. The common name comes from its extremely light wood. The bark is showy with lighter colored lenticels. Fall interest comes from yellow leaves and interesting oval fruits that are chartreuse and held close to the stems. There are separate male and female plants. Difficult to find in the trade.
