Calycanthus floridus Burgundy Spice

Calycanthus floridus 'Burgundy Spice' PPAF

Sweetshrub

'Burgundy Spice' Sweetshrub represents a radical color change in Calycanthus foliage, with lustrous deep burgundy leaves throughout the summer.  Richard Hesselein and Daryl Kobesky selected for darker foliage over a number of years, coming up with 2 beautiful purple colored sports.  We chose the best one to name Calycanthus floridus 'Burgundy Spice'.  The maroon flowers appear in May and June, and have the classic mango and pineapple fragrance of good Sweetshrub selections.  The fall foliage adds another season of enjoyment, turning attractive shades of yellow and amber.

PRN Preferred:  The deep burgundy foliage remains all summer, does not fade or bleach out in the sun.
