A handsome and unusual deciduous plant native to parts of China with clusters of white flowers in autumn. Heptacodium miconioides has attractive, glossy, dark green leaves with deeply marked veins and fantastic, lightly scented clusters of seven white flowers throughout late summer and early autumn.
These flowers are very pretty, popular with insects and butterflies and make Heptacodium particularly valuable as a late flowering plant! Once established, the bark is also eye-catching, with the mature bark becoming grey, while the younger growth is a very dark red. A reliable and easy to grow garden plant!
