Carolina Allspice

Native Shrub with Sweet Fragrance
Delightful, rounded shrub combines delightful fragrance, pretty blooms and eye-catching yellow fall foliage. Carolina Allspice, also called Sweetshrub and Strawberry Bush, is native to the United States and easy to grow. This deciduous shrub produces reddish-brown fragrant blooms that have hints of pineapple, strawberry and banana. The flowers give way to urn-shaped fruits which mature in the fall. Its dark green, lustrous leaves are aromatic when crushed and, in autumn, turn yellow. Because of its lovely fragrance, many gardeners plant this shrub near patios and entrances where its fragrance can be enjoyed. It's also a good choice for shrub borders and foundation plantings.
