More Information

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. Details Botanical name: Heptacodium miconioides 'SMNHMRF'

Hopeful

Arrived small, but with it being in the honeysuckle family, I was fairly sure it would recover and grow rapidly. It did, more or less, but to my disgruntlement it chose to grow horizontally! I let it grow as it wished throughout its first season (last year) in order to feed good root growth, and pruned away the horizontal growth early this spring, leaving two upward-aiming shoots. This isn't the charming multi-stemmed tree I was wishing for at this point, rather a horizontal "trunk" with two potential upward stems, but I'll keep watching and possibly shaping with the pruners. I've seen mature Seven Son trees and have a goal in mind, but I guess we get what we get. Maybe it will send up additional shoots from the base so I get the look I want. I will give it one more season and yank it if it stays funny-looking.

Healthy and Happy

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.
