great picture. I think, in my garden I would say: It ended like ll my other plants, what a pitty. ( don´t have a green thumb, I´m better in watching)

But in that case thats usual. Fascinating.

It facilitates seed dispersal by exposing the seeds. I usually find skeletalized leaves on the ground. It was interesting to see a seed pod in this condition on the tree.

looks strange with the brown and skeleton "leaves" around.

Oh, now I see it. The second picture definitely helps! I'll see if I can figure out what it is.
