Seven-Son Flower buds appear in early summer but the fragrant white flowers don't open until August. The single flowers appear in a seven flowered whorl and are loved by bees, butterflies and other pollinators. After the flowers fade their calyx darken to a vivid red color and are possibly showier than when in flower. After the leaves fall, the exfoliating bark of Heptacodium miconioides adds winter interest. A good substitute for a Crapemyrtle in a more northern climate. We have found Heptacodiums thriving in both Vermont and Maine.
