Tianshan® Seven-son flower

Heptacodium miconioides 'Minhep'

Bee pollinating Tianshan flower

While bred in France, this new cultivar is named after the mountain range in China where the species is native. Clusters of fragrant, creamy-white flowers appear in late summer, with each whorl containing 7 flowers. The blooms are followed in autumn by unusual purplish-red fruits. What makes this variety unique is its compact habit, growing only 8-12’, spreading only 5-7’. This small plant is well branched and forms a rounded, upright shrub or small tree with dark green shiny foliage that turns yellow in late fall. Exfoliating bark is very attractive in the winter. Use as a feature plant or as an informal hedge.
