Blooming This Week (3rd week of September):

"Seven Son Flower" (aka "Autumn Lilac")
(Heptacodium miconioides)

Although we are an herbaceous plant nursery every once in awhile a woody plant comes along that we just can't resist sharing. This multi-stemmed small tree/large shrub is so rare and yet so garden-worthy that we felt we needed to offer it. It is in glorious full bloom now with a profusion of creamy-white flowers, which will be followed by equally showy red calyxes. In winter the exfoliating bark adds subtle seasonal interest. This is definitely a small tree that deserves more attention as a landscape plant.
