Calycanthus floridus, Carolina Allspice
Highly fragrant burgundy flowers dot Carolina Allspice, Calycanthus floridus, in spring and summer. Large oval shaped leaves form into a dense rounded shrub that turn a pretty yellow in fall. Also known as the Strawberry bush as the flower scent resembles strawberries, bananas and pineapples. Chosen as a Missouri Botanical Garden Plant of merit for its outstanding ornamental value and ability to thrive in the St. Louis area.
Tolerant of a wide range of soils including consistently wet, Carolina Allspice thrive just about anywhere so long as it gets sun to part shade. Prune immediately after flowers to maintain smaller sizes.
