Description

Calycanthus are handsome, hardy shrubs that certainly deserve to be more widely grown. Glossy, deciduous foliage covers the gently arching branches, creating a lovely backdrop for the exotic, magnolia-like blooms. This duo brings together two particularly fine varieties, both with a lovely sweet fragrance. Commonly known as Sweetspice, these unusual shrubs are ideal for woodland edges and lightly shaded borders.

  • Calycanthus Duo comprises:
  • Calycanthus x raulstonii 'Hartlage Wine'- A rare but delightful, multi-stemmed shrub with upright to arching branches, bearing lustrous green, oval leaves and rich, burgundy blooms. Height and spread: 4m (13').
  • Calycanthus 'Venus' - Produces extremely fragrant, magnolia-like flowers with white strap-like petals in May. Height: 1.8m (6'). Spread: 1.5m (5').

Culinary note: Produces an edible and delicious spice. Snip off twigs and allow them to dry out in the sun or a low oven, then crush the bark and use like cinnamon. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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 plants are fully established.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, prune Calycanthus 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, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant.
