Attractive year-round, Heptacodium will add unique beauty and interest to your landscape as a featured specimen shrub or small tree. The pure species from China remained largely undiscovered until the early 1900s. After that time, it was significantly underused, but has recently returned to receive the attention it truly deserves! The cultivar Temple of Bloom® features a more compact habit and an earlier bloom than the pure Heptacodium. Butterflies are attracted to the fragrant white flowers which bloom in late summer, giving way to brilliant cherry-red bracts in autumn. Striking foliage. Attractive peeling bark makes this a fascinating specimen all year. Selectively prune to shape in winter to reveal the peeling bark patterns. Blooms on new wood.
Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!
