Seven-son Flower

#29 - Seven-son Flower (Heptacodium miconioides)

Fall and winter are the prime seasons of interest for this small tree. A native of China, it was only introduced in 1980. The small white flowers bloom on tiered panicles from August through October, then drop off, leaving clusters of bright red sepals. The tree is typically multi-stemmed, all the better to show off the strips of white and tan exfoliating bark through the winter months.
