First discovered in China and brought to the West by the famous plant explorer E. H. Wilson, this magnificent deciduous shrub provides unique points of interest no matter what the season.

In spring, there is the foliage: large, narrowly heart-shaped, glossy and rich green, with three deep veins. Then there is the exfoliating bark, which peels in thin strips to reveal a cinnamon-brown color. Early autumn brings the showy flowers, for which the species is named: fragrant, creamy white clusters of seven flowers produced in terminal panicles. Late autumn replaces blooms with spectacular small rounded fruits, each topped with a persistent cherry red or purple calyx.

Excellent as a specimen, Seven-Son Flower thrives in most garden soil.

Blooms September–October.

Size: 10' 0"–20' 0" high x 16' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
