'Aphrodite' Calycanthus floridus USPP 24,014


'Aphrodite Sweetshrub' is a new and improved calycanthus that produces large, bright red magnolia-like flowers. Unlike 'Hartlage Wine' it is very fragrant, producing a sweet, apple-like scent.  Plant near an entrance or walking path to enjoy this beauty's fragrance. This repeat bloomer has nice, glossy foliage, too. Give this shrub plenty of room to grow, as it can reach heights of 8 feet and widths of 6 feet, but that's just more to love. Deciduous.
