Common Name Sweet Shrub Variety  
Regional Names Carolina AllSpice
Botanical Name Calycanthus floridus
Description This is a very fragrant plant with an apple fragrance and is rarely sold in nurseries. Most commercial nurseries sell the northern form which is Calycanthus fertilis that is not as fragrant as Calycanthus floridus. Its northern cousin is easier to grow and most nurserymen don't know the difference. You can tell the difference by looking at the underside of the leaves. The northern species is glabrous (having no hairs) under the leaves and Calycanthus florida is pubescent (having soft hairs) on the underside of its leaves. This is a shade-loving shrub with bright yellow fall foliage. Mature to 6'High x 6-10'Wide.
