Buy Calycanthus 'Venus' Carolina allspice: An exquisite 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: shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This deciduous shrub is a beauty. It is a hybrid that is the result of a complex breeding programme, which has bestowed upon it the best features of all its parents. It is a strong grower and produces its large fragrant flowers over a long period from early summer. These are very beautiful, resembling slender-petalled magnolias, which open from fat buds that form along the stems. The first flush of flowers is the most impressive and will last for a few weeks, but once over, the plant will continue to bloom intermittently throughout summer and into autumn.

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