Searching Genus for CALYCANTHUS

A genus of six beautifully aromatic deciduous shrubs native to eastern China and North America.

CALYCANTHUS floridusSpring668
Carolina Allspiceto 2.7m  Zone: 4
Native to eastern North America this is a beautiful dense, deciduous shrub, much underused in gardens. The lustrous, oblong leaves are a rich, deep green, turning yellow in autumn. Calycanthus has many common names and all allude to the aromatic properties of its leaves, bark, twigs and roots. Best of all is the wonderfully fruity (strawberry?) scent produced by the unusual flowers. The large rusty-red blossoms appear in spring and sporatically throughout the summer.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment recommended.
