Lindera benzoin - Spicebush
This is a shrub in the Laurel Family, native to eastern North America. It typically grows 6-12’ high in moist locations with full sun to partial shade. Clusters of tiny, greenish-yellow flowers bloom along its branches in early Spring before the foliage emerges. Male and female flowers grow on separate plants, so you’ll need one of each. The larva of the Swallowtail Butterfly feeds on the leaves of this plant.
Sun to Semi-Shade, Average to Well-Drained Soil, Early Spring, 6-12’ Tall, Zones 4-9
