sun to part shade
By: Meriel Bradley
Seven-Son Flower is a beautiful and unusual tree or large shrub.
It is unique as it flowers in late summer with clusters of very fragrant creamy-white flowers at the ends of the branches from late summer until mid-fall, which attracts pollinators.
These are then followed by very attractive pink capsules from mid to late fall.
It has lovely pointed leaves and its shaggy bark lends some nice winter interest to the garden.
As a multi-stemmed small tree, that can have some floppy branches, it does well with regular pruning to keep it in check and tidy.
