Sweet Shrub


Sweet Shrub, Carolina Allspice or Calycanthus Floridus is a deciduous bush growing in various environments in the united states. The Shrub grows in various environments ranging from shaded forests to sunny and bright fields. The Shrub is most known for its sweet smell and has been cultivated. 


Sweet Shrub is a native plant that is highly aromatic


 The Shrub is known for its sweet smell, reminiscent of fruit like bananas or pineapples. It helped keep mildew smells away and left everything fresh. The Calycanthus Floridus is a reasonably large shrub that can grow anywhere from six to twelve feet. It can also grow outwards to around the duplicate footage, so you could see some of these shrubs being twelve feet tall and twelve feet wide. Most probably won't get to be that large, but it can happen.


 When it comes to conditions and soil type, this is one of the more flexible of the various bushes you can find in the United States. It can grow in various soil types, from heavily moist soil. It retains much water to well-drained soil that might lean towards the dryer side. It makes the Shrub surprisingly easy to grow or find in the well and a garden. This Shrub has a sweet scent that they give off, but that is not to say they don't have a flower because they do. It is a dark red flower with a bulb set of petals in the middle and then an exterior set of petals that fan out. The sweet scent of the bush can be influential on the flower. That being said, the flower is only sometimes the easiest to find.

 The Sweet Shrub can be a great addition to any setting, whether in woodland or a garden. The plant is disease resistant and offers a nice set of aesthetics and smell, which can improve anything. It is even plantable by seed.
