Heptacodium miconioides - Seven-Son Flower- Red calyxes (Oct)

Heptacodium miconioides

Seven-Son Flower

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.
