While bred in France, this new cultivar has many ties to China. Heptacodium miconoides is native to China, and the tradename is an homage to the Tianshan mountain range in China. What makes this variety unique is its compact habit. Tianshan® reaches a manageable height of only 8-12 feet. In late summer clusters of fragrant creamy white flowers appear. Each whorl contains 7 tiny flowers (thus the common name of seven-son flower). The flowers are followed by beautiful fruit with showy rose purple sepals that last for two to three weeks. The flowers produce abundant nectar attracting loads of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bumblebees. This small plant is well branched and forms a rounded, upright shrub with dark green shiny foliage that turns yellow in late fall. The bark is tan and exfoliates to reveal a brown inner bark which is very attractive in the winter. Not well known, this is a plant that deserves more attention by gardeners and designers. Be a trendsetter by adding this pleasing cultivar to your landscape today!
