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.

My Seven Son Flower tree arrived promptly and in excellent condition. Got it into the ground a few days later and it appears to have settled in well. Excited to see it really take off next spring.

Heptacodium Temple of Bloom® - Seven-Son Flower 30 days

We had 3 tenths inches of rain over the last 6 weeks so Temple of bloom is on my deck where I keep it watered. The plant arrived in good health after 2-3 days shipping. No issues. Now that you brought it to my attention, the plant has grown some. No way it's going back into a quart sized pot.

Because it produces lots of floral nectar late into the fall until a heavy frost

it is a great source of food for migrating Monarch butterflies, which are in steep decline. Since it is Asian (though apparently not invasive) cannot be planted in nature preserves but it is ideal for yards, golf courses, campuses, parks, etc. where there is a sunny location.

Can't wait for blooms

The Temple of Bloom tree was only available in small size but as always with this company, they arrive very healthy and are growing every day! Can't wait for blooming time
