What is tree of the month?

Heptacodium miconioides

Heptacodium miconioides

Why is it tree of the month?

This large shrub (or small tree!) native to China flowers in September. The white flowers are attractive among the green foliage and a most pleasant sight among the early colourers in the annual autumn show.

Where can I find it?

Notable specimens can be found in Colour Circle in the Old Arboretum and in Maple Loop in Silk Wood.
