Calycanthus floridus, Common SweetshrubThis 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'). More info
Aronia melanocarpa 'Hugin' (Large Plant)
The Chokeberry is a good source of Vitamin C and antioxidants, and can be a useful plant in the garden, with fragrant spring blooms, red autumn colours and its edible berries. ‘Hugin’ is a compact variety, reaching only 1m (39") in height, so is good for small gardens.
Aronia is the ideal shrub for beginners, and can be grown in sun or shade, or even in boggy, waterlogged conditions. Plants are resistant to dry conditions too, a range of pests and diseases and polluted air. Height: 2m (6'). Spread: 3m (10').More info
