Aphrodite Sweetshrub

(Calycanthus ‘Aphrodite’ pp#24,014)

Incredible. Red, magnolia-like flowers with a light fruity fragrance. But, what is really amazing is that it continues to rebloom for weeks or months and the flowers are held on long pedicles. It does get big, 6-8’ so give it a little room. It is great along a woodland edge.
