Calycanthus x 'Venus' USPP 15,925

 

'Venus' Sweetshrub is another new and improved calycanthus that produces large, bright white flowers with a burgundy center. Similar to 'Aphrodite' it produces very fragrant blooms which emit a strawberry or melon-like scent. Plant near your outdoor entertainment area or walking path to ensure you enjoy this beauty's fragrance, but give it ample space to grow.  Calycanthus is deciduous and native to U.S. streambanks and woodlands.  'Venus' would be a lovely addition to a native border or natural wildlife area.

Joseph's Take

I love both Venus and Aphrodite Sweetshrub. 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.
