Seven Sons Flower

Seven sons flower is native to China. The deciduous shrub reaches a height of 15 to 20 feet. The name comes from flowering habit of the plant. Fragrant white flowers appear in late summer in clusters of seven, hence the name seven sons. Leaves have three distinct veins that help to identify the plant. Bark is continuously peeling, adding texture and interest throughout the entire year, even in winter months.
