Lindera benzoin

Spicebush

Lindera benzoin has delicate pale yellow flowers in early spring, a standout in leafless woodsy vistas. The leaves, twigs and fruit are all fantastically fragrant when bruised and in that way great for connecting people to nature  In the fall the lemon yellow foliage lights up the woods. Plants are dioecious and female plants produce shiny red fruit which is an important food source for migrating birds.  It is a host plant for the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and Spicebush Swallowtail.  Our native Spicebush is wet site tolerant and deciduous.
