Juglans ailantifolia female flowers

The vibrant red female flowers on a Japanese Walnut (Juglans ailantifolia)


The Heartnut (Juglans ailantifolia var. cordiformis)

Juglans Mandschurica subsp. Seiboldiana

The Manchurian or Chinese Walnut (Juglans Mandshurica subsp. Seiboldiana)


The English or Persian Walnut (Juglans regia ‘Red Danube’)


And then there are the male walnut catkins, shaking their stuff!

Wimpole Estate looks after a National Juglans Collection and they are in flower during May.

    I had no idea there were so many types of walnuts. Sweet flowers!

  2. What a fascinating post. I love walnut trees and am always impressed by how very cautious they are in flowering and then leafing, no frost damage for them!
