White Flowering Seven-Son Flower -
Fragrant white flowers appear on the Seven-Son Flower from late summer to early fall. Though not much in the way of fall color, as the leaves drop beautiful peeling bark is revealed. The gray brown exfoliating bark retains interest to the tree throughout winter into early spring when once again the long vein defined dark green leaves appear. A member of the honeysuckle family, the Seven Son Heptacodium is a fast growing tall shrub maturing in the 15 to 20 foot height range with a spread of up to 15 feet wide.
Good source of nectar for butterflies for late summer to fall. Use in windbreaks, hedges, street tree, and to screen out areas.
