Late summer interest? We’ve got that covered

Late summer interest? We’ve got that covered

A client recently asked what does a Heptacodium do. Here are its highlights. There’s a few so sit tight for a bit!

  • Attractive peeling yellow-brown bark. The bark peels off in long strips giving an added dimension to the tree.
  • Fragrant creamy- white flowers are freely produced in the summer.
  • As the flowers fall bright red to purple calyx remain on the tree extending the season of interest well into late summer.
  • Purple-pink fruits are produced in the autumn.
  • Foliage colour in the autumn ranges from purple to yellow.
  • The leaves have attractive wavy margins.
  • Heptacodium are proven to be valuable wildlife food sources for bees and butterflies
  • Reaching a height of between 400 to 700cm, Heptacodium are an excellent choice as a statement tree in smaller gardens or large shrubs in larger areas.
  • Tolerant of many soil types.
  • Can be grown as a small tree or large shrub.
  • Great ornamental value.

Now, isn’t that just a fabulous choice? All these attributes on one plant. What more could you possible ask for?
