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.
