Heptacodium miconioides

Common Name: Seven-Son Flower

Due to its multi-season appeal, this multi-stemmed tree, introduced from China only in 1980, is finally starting to gain followers. Covered with large clusters of white flowers in mid summer, in late summer and fall it displays great masses of pink-red seeds. Finally, the winter season highlights its shaggy bark - the color of soft beach sand. It does require shaping to highlight its normally "stemmy" form - a central leader formed early helps to make it a highly marketable tree, but it cannot be reshaped if neglected when small.
