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.

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

My plant is not thriving

Hopefully it doesn’t die but right now it’s not a happy plant at all. Disappointed with the health of the plant.

Not up to Great Gardens standards. 12-in. plant poorly formed - bent with crowded branches and dry/brown leaves. Dry, root-bound pot when arrived. Trying to save by planting on its side and spreading branches with small stakes. We'll see. Photo has brown leaves removed.

Small plant really beat up in shipping

I was really excited about ordering this plant. It's the first time I've ordered from this company. The plant was in a gallon pot, but was small. Additionally, the central leader was broken (probably in shipping) and the leaves looked pretty rough. They were brown and crispy on several tips and also had brown crispy spots on the leaves as well. I've planted and am crossing my fingers it snaps out of it.
