Male Flowers

Some trees species have both male and female reproductive parts on the same tree. Others, called dioecious, have male and female parts separated on individual trees. Kentucky coffeetree (Gymnocladus dioicus) is one of these species. This is even signified in the species epithet. These are the flowers of a male Kentucky coffeetree.
