Heptacodium miconioides

Seven-son-flower is an upright, irregular, loose and open shrub growing 15 to 20’ high. Leaves appear early spring soft green maturing to dark green; very attractive and pest free. Flower buds form in early summer, but do not open until September. Individual flowers are tiny, but fragrant and attract butterflies to the garden. Sepals persist and change green to rose-purple and are as attractive as the flowers. Bark is exfoliating, whitish, to rich brown and green.
Seven-son-flower grows best in moist, well-drained, acid soil, but seems adaptable.
