Comments: A fountain-shaped deciduous shrub that is often seen as a multi-stemmed specimen. In late summer whorls of creamy white, fragrant flowers are present in clusters on the branches. Each whorl contains 7 flowers and thus its name of Seven-sons flower. Folliwing flowering, small, purplish-red fruit are very showy in autumn. These fruits are crowned by 5 very showy, sepal-like rose calyces which elongate after bloom. This creates quite a show into the fall. A rare native that is just becoming available in the USA.
