Calycanthus floridus var. glaucus
- Position: full sun
- Soil: fertile, moist, humus-rich soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to August
- Flower colour: dark red

This spreading shrub is an excellent, scented specimen for a sunny shrub or mixed border. Not only does it produce fragrant, brownish-red, strap-shaped flowers from June to August, but the dark green leaves give off a fabulous aromatic scent when crushed. A delight.
- Garden care: In March cut back to the permanent framework of the plant. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost, manure or leaf-mould around the base of the plant.
