Description

Fragrant white flowers August –September then large clusters of burgundy calyces surround the fruit capsules as showy as the flowers on this large shrub or small tree. Ornamental tan and red-brown peeling bark and glossy heart-shaped leaves. “Avant Gardener” newsletter September 2011, calls it the “two-bloom tree,” saying, “more and more praise is being lavished on a rare late-flowering shrub/tree … even more showy (than the panicles of fragrant white flowers) is its ‘second bloom’, consisting of red-purple calyxes which remain after the flowers fall…well into October.” Also recommended by Harvard Arnold Arboretum’s curator of living collections.
