Acer plamatum 'Bloodgood'
Starting today I plan to post a 'HortiCOOLture' picture every Sunday. This would be something that speaks of the wonders of plant life and their environment. To begin with, I have this Japanese Maple leaves and samaras taken after the rain.
Samaras are a type of fruit where in the seed is enclosed by a thin tissue that extends out forming a wing-like structure. The wing-like structure eventually facilitates the natural transport or dispersal of the seeds.
That is very cool!
