Mountain beech flowers

The male flowers of mountain beech bloom in spring, just as leaf buds burst to reveal the new season’s leaves. The simple flower has five light-green petals and 8–14 dark red anthers, full of pollen. The female flower is minute, and blooms after the male flower has shed its pollen.
