"Staphylea trifolia" (American Bladdernut) is native to eastern North America, from southern Ontario and southwestern Quebec west to Nebraska and Arkansas, and south to Florida.

It is a medium sized shrub growing to 11 m tall. The leaves are opposite, compound with three leaflets, each leaflet up to 10 cm long and 5 cm broad, with a serrated margin. In spring, they produce pendant white flowers, followed by the bladder-like, teardrop-shaped fruits that contain several large black seeds.
