Calycanthus floridus 'Burgundy Spice' PP 28,886


This calycanthus has stunning dark burgundy-purple summer foliage, and the unique flowers that the sweetshrubs are known for--a tropical fruity scent graces these blooms. These blooms are on new growth, so save the trimming until after you have had your fill of the uniquely red to yellow-tipped beautiful petals. This deciduous shrub gets to be around 7 feet tall, ideal for a privacy hedge that delights the eyes and nose.

I love all four of our Sweetshrub offerings. They grow fast, have large leaves, and the flowers smell amazing. I like to use them for privacy where an evergreen is not preferred. I like to plant them in groupings away from the house so I can enjoy looking at the show of flowers from afar.
