Seven-son Flower

Used as a large arching shrub or small multi-stemmed tree, Heptacodium is truly a plant for all seasons. The glossy dark green foliage really sets off the fragrant white flowers that appear in August and September. Then as the sepals turn a pinkish red, the show really begins and continues through autumn. The bark is beautiful as it exfoliates to expose a light brown underbark. Quite adaptable to either moist or dry soil, Heptacodium prefers sun to light shade. We recommend some winter protection in zone 4 for the first few years. 2006 Plants of Merit®.

What Our Clients Have to Say

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
