      While common sweetshrub (Calycanthus floridus) may not be on the tip of everyone’s tongue, it certainly should catch the attention of most gardeners as an excellent deciduous shrub. While the popularity of this plant is not debated, which common name to use might be. A North American native, summersweet marks the ending of summer with its fragrant white flowers. It starts blooming in August in many areas and continues the show into fall when the small to medium shrub’s foliage yellows. Hummingbirds and butterflies flock to summersweet blossoms, but deer steer clear, making this a great shrub for locations with a large deer population.

Eastern Sweetshrub (Calycanthus floridus L.) By Rhonda Stewart. The Eastern Sweetshrub is a native shrub that reaches 6 to 9 feet in height. The highly fragrant twigs, leaves, and flowers give rise to another common name of Carolina allspice.

The flowers are deep red to maroon, and last a month or more. Sweet shrub, (genus Calycanthus), also called Carolina allspice, California allspice, or strawberry shrub, one of two species of small ornamental trees of the family Calycanthaceae, with aromatic bark and sweet-scented flowers, both native to North America.

The sweet shrub bush has opposite, simple, smooth-margined leaves. The petals of the brownish maroon to red magnolia-like flowers. Sweetshrub is a slow growing, deciduous shrub, also known as Carolina allspice, strawberry bush, pineapple shrub and sweet Betsy, due to its fragrant flowers.

Its botanical name is Calycanthus floridus. The shrub grows wild in the southeastern United. In our yard off the back deck was a shrub, which my grand mother, who was a native to this area, called a "Sweet Bubby Bush". She said that in her youth, she learned that she could use the flowers from this shrub as a sachet in her clothing drawers, which was common practice of young women in this area in the 's and 30's.

This was a perfect book to read during election week only 2 weeks after a couple of days in Austin. The book was written during Bush's last term as Governor of Texas, prior to his first term as President. Ivins gave a bit of biographical information, but much of the book was about politics in Texas in a comfortable, fluent, sometimes ironic style/5.Grown since Colonial times, also called Sweet Shrub.

Grows ft. tall with deep burgundy late-spring blooms. Sweet Shrub has a heavenly fragrance similar to strawberries. Thrives in sun or partial shade. Flowering shrubs are bargains in : $
