Four Season Interest
A garden adventure! Dazzling seasonal stunts create thrilling special effects. Glossy spring foliage with deep veins develops long twisting tips. Fragrant white flower clusters in August, loved by hummingbirds and other pollinators, drop to reveal vivid red bracts. An antidote to winter, the handsome peeling bark makes this multi-stemmed beauty even more desirable. The elegant frame of Heptacodium Temple of Bloom™ is more compact and blooms earlier so the cherry-red bracts show up sooner for a longer display before winter. The common name, Seven-Son Flower is in reference to how the flowers are arranged on the stems. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow.

Heptacodium General Information

Heptacodium have an upright spreading, multi-stemmed habit. After the white flowers have fallen, the remaining calyces develop a deep red color lasting into November and are as visually enticing as the flowers. Seven Son Flower also displays interesting exfoliating bark - a must-have deciduous shrub. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Heptacodium Plant Care

To establish a deep, extensive root system, follow a regular watering schedule the first year. Before new growth appears in spring, apply a general purpose fertilizer. Fast grower. Can be pruned into an elegant vase-shaped specimen, or maintained as a shrub. If pruning is desired, prune in late winter or very early spring, as the flower buds begin to set shortly after the plant leafs out.
