Tianshan Seven Son Flower Tree
Tianshan Seven Son Flower Tree (Heptacodium miconioides ‘MINHEP’)
Clusters of fragrant, creamy-white flowers appear in late summer, with each whorl containing 7 flowers. The blooms are followed in autumn by unusual purplish-red fruits. What makes this variety unique is its compact habit, growing only 8-12’, spreading only 5-7’. This small plant is well branched and forms a rounded, upright shrub or small tree with dark green shiny foliage that turns yellow in late fall. Exfoliating bark is very attractive in the winter. Use as a feature plant or as an informal hedge.
