Calycanthus floridus ‘Athens’ – Sweetshrub or Carolina Allspice – 3-Gallon


Sweetshrub usually has showy, maroonish-red flowers. This cultivar has greenish-yellow flowers that tend to be camoflauged by foliage. So why grow a cultivar with non-showy flowers? For their incredible fragrance, of course. The fragrance is hard to characterize, but definitely fruity and stronger in the afternoon. Although the peak of bloom is late spring, flowers appear sporadically until fall.
