Temple of Bloom seven-son flower (Heptacodium miconioides) provides four seasons of beauty in your yard or garden! This small tree from Proven Winners stuns 365 days of the year, with thick, leathery, dramatically veined foliage in spring, thousands of fragrant summer flowers, which drop and leave behind red bracts through autumn. In winter, you'll appreciate its elegant structure and naturally peeling bark. 

Thanks to its rich supply of nectar and crucial late summer bloom time, this plant is an absolute favorite of butterflies, hummingbirds, and pollinators in general. For many years, we had a seven-son flower tree outside our office and hummingbirds nested in it every year, so we're especially fond of it. It's the ideal tree for smaller yards due to its size and scale, and because it doesn't cast too much shade, it's perfect for planting in your pollinator garden.

Too soon to tell

The shrubs just got here. I expected small trees but they r more like shrubs. I planted in big pots expecting then to bush out in the years to come so I will review in a few years. They were well packaged

No growth

We watered and planted but have not seen any growth.

Hello! We're sorry to hear that you are disappointed in the growth of your new plant. It is hard to say for certain why you are not seeing growth as quickly as you'd like since many factors such as, weather, light, water, soil type, and fertilizing all play a role in plant growth. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. With proper care, you will see growth in time. Happy Gardening!
