• Description

    Heptacodium miconioides is a large, fountain-shaped, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub that typically grows 15-20' at maturity with a 10' spread. May also be trained as a single-trunk tree. Features terminal panicles of fragrant, creamy-white flowers in late summer to early fall. Flowers appear in capitula (flattened clusters of stalkless blooms) within typically seven-branched clusters. Each capitulum typically contains six flowers. Flowers are followed in fall by an equally showy (if not showier) display: small, purplish-red fruits (½" long drupes) crowned by very showy, rose-pink calyces which elongate after bloom and last into late fall. Tan bark exfoliates to reveal attractive brown inner bark, which provides good winter interest.
