Calycanthus 'Burgundy Spice' is a stunning selection of the Eastern US (NY south to Mississippi) native sweetshrub from our friends at Pleasant Run Nursery. The typical green leaves on this 8' tall x 8' wide, slowly-suckering, deer-resistant deciduous shrub have been replaced by ones with dark purple pigment, which holds well through the summer heat. In early spring, the plants are adorned with fragrant burgundy-colored axillary flowers. Calycanthus 'Burgundy Spice' is one of the most exciting native plant selections for landscape design that we've run across in recent years...we think you'll agree.
