Buy Heptacodium miconioides seven son: Late summer and autumn flowers

  • Position: full sun or light dappled shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, neutral to acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: September to November
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Clusters of scented, creamy-white flowers appear at the ends of the branches from late summer, and long after they have fallen, the pinkish-red calyxes often remain colourful, deepening to rich burgundy as they age. When not in flower the deciduous leaves are attractive in their own right. Lustrous green and deeply veined, they hang in elegant pairs along the branches, usually become tinged with claret before they fall. A member of the honeysuckle family, this multi-stemmed shrub or small tree is loved by butterflies and makes a stylish and unusual addition to the garden.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Requires minimal pruning.

Hello, This will all be slightly different, but they will be approximately 1.2m tall.

I live in the Lune Valley area of the n/west. The position of my new woodland border faces e/s/w. It is also windy. I have not heard of this tree and wonder if it would do well up here. The border was part of a field which has now been turned into a garden, the border has been mulched well this year. I was going to plant Crateagus prunifolia but the idea of having flowers in late summer/autumn might persuade me otherwise. I have no other planting in the border as yet.

Hello, These are fully hardy so the weather should not be a problem, but they do like a soil with a neutral to acidic pH. If you have this, then it should be fine.

I have just planted this tree purchased from you and something is eating the leaves??? Whatever it is, is very small as I can't seem to see them, but the leaves are seeming to pucker at the ends and turn black as well as being 'chewed' at the ends! Help please!!! Many thanks Heather Hayter

Hello, I suspect the culprits are aphids as if they feed on the leaves when they are first emerging, then it will cause the leaves to pucker. The only thing you can do at this stage is to keep an eye out for them and either blast them off with a hose, or use a suitable insecticide.
