Eucommia ulmoides
Hardy Rubber Tree

The fruits of Hardy Rubber Tree only occur on the female trees, and consist of capsules that hold a single seed, resembling the samaras of Ash or Elm. In addition, this image shows the beauty of the Summer foliage as a dark, glossy green color with alternate leaves having an oval to obovate shape, ringed with serrated margins and acuminate apices.
