Description / Calycanthus 'Sweetshrub'

Calycanthus floridus Sweetshrub is a dense rounded shrub that features very fragrant dark red, crimson flowers which bloom in the late spring to early summer. Flowers give way to seed capsules that mature into fruit during the fall and persist through the winter, inviting all your feathered friends to feast. The lustrous, dark green leaves turn a bright golden yellow in the fall. If all that wasn't enough the leaves are highly aromatic when bruised or crushed! This is commonly called sweetshrub or a strawberry bush in reference to the fragrant blooms which have been described as combining hints of pineapple, strawberry, and banana. It easily grown in medium, well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prune immediately after flowering to shape or maintain compactness. Let the sweet scent and interesting habit of this sweetshrub entice visitors to your garden!
