Notes:

This mystery tree has appeared in my landscape. I think the white pods have seeds.

    We have 2 Chinese tallow trees in our yard (central Florida) that have produced nothing that looks like that. Are there any other ideas out there?

    We’re fighting an infestation of this tree on our property in Montgomery. Chinese Tallow AKA “Popcorn” tree and it seems that each bloom is an invasive seed. Get rid of it asap or your entire neighborhood will be over-run.

    We had several Chinese tallow trees in our subdivision near Charleston. I witnessed many bluebirds feasting on the seeds.
    I know they are invasive trees. Many arrangements of these seed pods can be purchased at the open market in downtown Charleston.

    We had a big one in our back yard in Houston. They are messy four seasons of the year. Agree you should cut it down before the pods break open and spread seedlings all over your yard.

    I agree, Chinese tallow tree – and yes, invasive. But rather pretty!
