Sinocalycanthus sinensis

<< PREV Image 1 of 2 NEXT >>

Chinese Sweetshrub

This large deciduous shrub was recently reclassified as a Calycanthus. It is somewhat like our native Calycanthus floridus but with larger 6 - 10 inch glossy leaves.  The cream-white blooms in late spring are larger than North American Calycanthus species flowers but not scented. Should be planted in partial to full shade where it blooms in mid to late spring. Prefers consistantly moist soil, but do not over water. A relatively recent introduction from China. Woodlanders was one of the first nurseries to offer this plant in the U.S.  See our listing for hybrids between this and our native Calycanthus including 'Hartlege Wine' and 'Venus'
