HEPTACODIUM TEMPLE OF BLOOM
A beautiful, easy to grow small tree with handsome leaves sporting dramatically deep veins that appear in the spring. As the season progresses, the leaves grow larger and develop a long, twisting tip. In August, when everything else is winding down, Temple of Bloom seven-son flower is just coming into its own, as it becomes covered in big clusters of fragrant white flowers that hummingbirds and other pollinators flock to. They last for weeks before gracefully falling to the ground to reveal vivid red, fan-like bracts, which make it look like the plant is blooming again in a completely different color. As winter comes and the leaves drop, the plant's elegant frame is revealed, along with amazing light tan peeling bark.
