“Heptacodium miconioides or Seven Son Flower is a bushy, upright shrub and tree with a vase shape to nearly round, half-open crown.

It can reach up to anywhere from 4 to 6 metres in height and similar spread, growing from a shrub into a small multi-stem tree.

It produces dark green leaves and prolific clusters of small fragrant white flowers from late summer to late autumn. Great value to bees and butterflies.

It needs full or partial sun but will tolerate any non-alkaline soil as long as it is moist, free draining , and with some humus content.

Relatively hardy, particularly frost resistant, and okay in coastal locations.”
