Seven-Son Flower is popular for its enchanting blooms, and excitingly rich, showy pink fruits in the fall. Fragrant, creamy white flowers bloom copiously in whorls of seven, in August-September. Heptacodium miconioides has distinctive purplish-red fruit with rose pink calyces, changing to purple then to brown, and persisting into the winter.

A tall, deciduous shrub or tree, it has an open, upright, fountain-like growing habit. The thin, tan to dark red, exfoliating bark is quite handsome. Seven-Sons Tree has dark green foliage that turns dark purple in the fall.

The flowers are much enjoyed by local butterflies and hummingbirds in the fall. This award-winning ornamental shrub is a hidden gem, recently becoming more popular in North America.
