Heptacodium micinoides –  This unique large shrub blooms in the fall!  The white flowers are fragrant, and it has an almost tropical look to it.

This shrub can be pruned into a tree, if that form is desired. (See read more..) Blooming in late August, it is followed by red bracts that extend the season of interest into September.

A tree form Heptacodium.  Frequent pruning is needed to keep the tree looking its best!
