As soon as you come near Simply Scentsational calycanthus, your nose knows: this is something special. It is the calycanthus that actually lives up to - maybe even exceeds - the oft-described (but seldom smelt!) hints of pineapple and bubblegum in the fragrance. Selected and refined over an 18 year period by Spring Meadow's Tim Wood, the blooms of this North American native are an intriguing deep maroon and appear in abundance through late spring and summer. The blooms are powerfully fragrant, even when they are wilted - you've really just got to smell it for yourself.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Calycanthus x Simply Scentsational®

Grow in well-drained, acidic media. Flowers on old wood, so late-season trimming the season before sale should be avoided. Large foliage necessitates larger containers for best results. Benefits from a protected site and/or heavy mulch in colder end of its hardiness range.

Mixed borders; perennial beds; hedges; foundation plantings; screening and privacy.

Prune to shape after flowering.

Adapts to most soils; moist soils with organic matter are preferred
