Sweet Shrub

3 Gallons
  • Pollinator value: Medium; Attracts native bees

    Two-inch maroon flowers up and down the twigs for a month or more in spring and summer are very fragrant -- like a fruit salad!

    It has summer fruits and a pleasant yellow fall color.  Best planted where its fragrance can be enjoyed.

    Also called Carolina allspice.
