  • Most likely the rubrum (red) species
  • This specimen borders a parking lot
  • Blooms in mid to late winter
  • The red things are "samaras" or seeds.  I will have to wait until next winter to photograph the actual flowers.
  • Thanks to the members of Gardenweb for helping me with identification.
