Carolina Allspice Plant

Highly Fragrant Flowers and Foliage

  • Low-maintenance, deciduous shrub
  • Blooms in late spring to early summer
  • Native to the United States
  • Deer tend to avoid
Grown since Colonial times, also called Sweet Shrub. Grows 6-9 ft. tall with deep burgundy late-spring blooms. Sweet Shrub has a heavenly fragrance similar to strawberries. Thrives in sun or partial shade.

Flowering shrubs are bargains in beauty. They produce a profusion of flowers and foliage a feast for or senses and seem equally attractive to birds, butterflies and hummingbirds. Even when they're not in bloom, many add interest to the landscape. Shrubs grow fast, last nearly forever and require a minimum care.
