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.

Temple Of Bloom® Seven Son Flower

Follow-up 2nd year

My 7-son tree is now in its second year of growth, and I trimmed away the previously described unwanted horizontal growth in early spring. The tree responded immediately with upright growth, and is now well over four feet tall with multiple angled, upward stems. But best of all--it has set buds for autumn flowering! This, in only its second year in my garden! I am beyond delighted with this tree, its robust growth, and its cooperative nature. Once in a while a gardener needs "instant gratification," even in a shrub or tree.
I would like to add, last summer it arrived small, misshapen, and bearing few leaves. But as we all know "it's a honeysuckle" so basically a reliably hardy, weedy shrub. It grows fast, it recovers well, and it responds to pruning. I am looking forward to the autumn bloom and to continue shaping this amazing specimen to fit into my garden plans.
I highly recommend this tree.

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
