Family: Calycanthaceae

This species comes from the same primitive lineage as the more famous spice bush or melon tree (Calycanthus floridus), but isn’t as common. This species is also quite aromatic: the flowers and leaves spread a scent that resembles to the smell of red wine. The red flowers are pollinated by bugs and bloom best in full sun. The plant is fully hardy and proves to be a great addition to your garden due to its beautiful growth and lovely fragrances.
