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.
