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.

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

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
