Heptacodium Temple Of Bloom® Description

Stand out on your block with Temple of Bloom® seven-son flower (Heptacodium miconioides). Many years under development by Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs, this small tree makes a truly stunning specimen all year-round. Spring sees the emergence of big, thick, leathery leaves with prominent veins, giving it a sculptural look. Blooming begins in late summer (at least 2 weeks earlier than the conventional seven-son flower), when it seems to explode with fragrant white flowers that attract tons of pollinators (hummingbirds often nested in the one in our previous trial garden!). As the blooms fade, they are replaced by prominent red bracts that look like a second bloom. When the show’s finally over in autumn, the striking silhouette of Temple of Bloom seven-son flower comes into focus, accentuated by dramatic peeling bark.

This special tree deserves a special place in your yard – and your heart.

Special features: Long-blooming, Multi-season interest, Tree, Fragrant, Attracts pollinators, Attracts hummingbirds
