Calycanthus floridus - Sweetshrub, Bubby Bush
An old time favorite with fragrant maroon flowers in the late spring to early summer. Has large dark shiny green leaves, which make this an attractive plant when not in bloom. Will grow in varied conditions which include sun or shade, but the best spot in semi-shade with rich slightly moist soil. It will send off underground runners and will form a large clump over time with many blooms. While the blooms are fragrant you will have to get pretty close to appreciate them.
Sun to Shade, Rich Moist Soil, 4-8 ft Tall, Zones 4-9
