Around The Garden World – Day 35

This time of year one of the prettiest plants in my garden is my “Seven Sons” tree.

With a name like Heptacodium miconioides, Seven Sons tree is a whole lot easier to say. Hardy zones 5-9. Drought tolerant. 
The white flowers on this tree lasted for only about a month, but these rosy calyxes last long into autumn.

Some times described as a large shrub, this plant has pretty peeling bark that is very attractive during the winter when the tree/shrub is limbed up.
