Day 254 – 11Sep2011 – Seven Sons

Project 365 HG – Seven Sons.

Day 254 – An interesting tree in the Historic Gardens is the Seven Sons – Heptacodium miconioides. As the name indicates, the flower heads tend to be comprised of seven flowers.

It blooms in late summer, unlike most other trees, providing a September highlight and its exfoliating bark adds year round interest.
