A Non-Native Tree that has Naturalized
It's hard to miss the fruit of the Amur Cork Tree this time of year, the female trees are laden with the dark blue clusters. The compound leaves also turn a golden yellow, so the fruit stands out even more.
Native to eastern Asia; northern China, Manchuria, Korea, Ussuri, Amur, and Japan, the Amur cork tree is considered invasive in many parts of North America. (Wikipedia)
