Buy Calycanthus × raulstonii 'Hartlage Wine' Carolina allspice: A beautiful summer-flowering shrub

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    First previewed at Chelsea in 2010, this rare and delightful shrub will often produce its lightly scented flowers from late spring to early autumn. The flowers themselves are a delight and form along the branches. They are a rich shade of burgundy red, with just a hint of cream towards their centre - very attractive against the backdrop of the lustrous green foliage, which usually turns buttery shades in autumn.

  • Garden care: Shelter from cold drying winds. Remove dead or damages stems in late winter or early spring.

Lovely plant

5

What a lovely plant. I first saw this in my work garden and was determined to have it in my own. It went in last year but didn't flower. This year it has a mass of ruby red flower buds and large green leaves. Having survived this winter it is definitely hardy!

Does this have any preference of soil pH?

Trev

Hello, No, provided there are no extremes in pH, then this plant will growing in neutral, slightly acidic or slightly alkaline soils.

Helen

Hello! I love the idea of this plant and have a space in a west facing garden, sheltered from the east wind by a box hedge. However, It is near a tree, do you think this will be suitable? 2 nearby roses grow well and our soil is loamy, moist and well drained.

Blossom

Hello there That sounds perfect as they like a sheltered spot, with a south or west facing aspect, a moist well drained loamy soil, as long as it gets plenty of sun. Hope this helps
