Carolina Allspice

Calycanthus floridus, Common Sweetshrub

Hardy Shrub

This unique shrub seems to be one of gardening's best kept secrets, but hopefully not for much longer. Carolina Allspice is a hardy, adaptable and trouble-free garden shrub. And, the best bit is the fragrance - like a bowl of stewed apples with cinnamon. The perfume comes from not only the showy flowers, but also from the crushed leaves! Height: 2.5m (8'). Spread: 3m (10').

Acclimatise Calycanthus plants to outdoor conditions for a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting in their final positions. Grow Calycanthus in borders, in moist, fertile, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Choose a position in full sun. Water regularly until Carolina allspice plants are fully established.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, prune Calycanthus floridus in early spring as the buds begin to swell. Cut back all stems to a low permanent framework, 3 or 4 buds from the base of the plant. After pruning Carolina allspice, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: Calycanthus is harmful if eaten.
