Description

Four seasons of beauty. Heptacodium has always been an under-used shrub: let’s change that! Temple of Bloom® heptacodium was years in development and improves on the straight species with a more compact habit and an earlier bloom, which means that its cherry-red bracts show up sooner for a memorable fall display. Handsome, high quality foliage and attractive peeling bark make this truly a plant for all seasons.
