Lindera subcoriacea

Bog Spicebush

Bog Spicebush is a rare native deciduous shrub similar to Lindera benzoin. It differs in having somewhat more leathery leaves that are more blunt tipped and only very faintly lemon scented rather than strongly aromatic spicy foliage. Also it occurs in wetter sites, usually in acidic seepage bogs, in very scattered places from Virginia or possibly New Jersey to Louisiana. It was only first described in 1984 (from Mississippi) and has been considered for endangered species status. It was new to cultivation when introduced by Woodlanders. Plant in well-drained sandy soil with irrigation unless you have a natural seepage area with constant water movement through the soil.
