Why plant Seven Son Flower - low branch?

Unusual and uncommon is how we would describe Seven Son Flower, despite the fact that it’s a fast-growing tree that blooms a long time, smells great, and is easy to grow. This small to medium sized tree’s jasmine-scented flowers arrive in late summer—a nice change from all the spring-flowering trees that abound. Plant Seven Sons near your patio or porch, then stand back while the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds swarm the flowers like paparazzi. And when the blooms are spent, the flowers don’t just fade away, but turn fuchsia-pink and hang around a while longer! This is one cool flowering tree that deserves to be more widely known.

Seven Son Flowers was brought to the U.S. by Harvard's famed plant explorer E.H. "Chinese" Wilson in 1907. However, no plants survived that trip, and the species fell back into obscurity. Seventy-three years later, Americans again ventured to China to locate the rare plant and were successful. Today, gardeners can get their hands on this wonderful tree that is still quite uncommon. The plant's name refers to how the tiny flowers are grouped into clusters of seven. They resemble the flowers of honeysuckle - to which they are related - and are butterfly manna.

How to use Seven Son Flower - low branch in the landscape?

Enjoy this unique, small scale tree on your patio all summer long, then plant it into the landscape in the fall for long term beauty. Spectacular, long lasting, fragrant white flowers bloom in early fall. The exceptional look is enhanced by the tan peeling bark. No wonder it is a Gold Medal Plant Award winner from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and a Cary Award Winner from the Worcester County Horticultural Society for its outstanding performance, hardiness and eye-appeal.

How To Plant Seven Son Flower - low branch

Seven Son Flower is a medium to fast grower in average soils and full sun to part shade. Its growth is rather erratic, but stunningly picturesque. This tree needs regular water in summer to perform its best, so if a week goes by without rain, it will appreciate a drink from the hose. It is otherwise simple to grow. Be prepared to explain to your neighbors what this interesting tree is and where they can get one!

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

How To Prune

Seven Son does tend to accumulate a bit of deadwood, but usually the branches affected are small and easily pruned out. Be sure to prune in late winter. As a late summer flowering tree, if you prune in spring or early summer, you may be removing the flower buds!

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care. We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees and shrubs, Size XL and bigger, will take approximately 21 to 28 days to be delivered, during live shipping periods.

Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations. Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
