Northern Spice Bush Description

Northern Spice Bush

 

Northern Spice Bush is a deciduous, medium-sized shrub that will perform well in the warmer USDA plant hardiness zones. This bush gets its common name from the leaves and berries, which emit a mildly spicy aroma when bruised or crushed.

 

The species is a native of the eastern United States, mainly in the southeastern region, the lower midwest, and west as far as Texas and Oklahoma.

 

Some gardeners might shorten the common name northern spicebush to just spice bush.

 

How and Where to Grown Northern Spice Bush

 

In nature, the shrub grows in full-sun or partial sunshine clearings, meadows, and slopes. It requires about an inch of water per week but does not like to stay continuously wet, so quick-draining soil is a must.

 

However, once you meet the light and drainage requirements, the northern spice bush will become very independent; it needs nothing more from you except water during a dry week.

 

TN Nursery customers often order northern spice bush to use in these locations:

 

  •      Shade garden (in a partially sunny spot)
  •      Rock garden
  •      Pollinator garden
  •      Natural area
  •      Urban garden
  •      Native species garden

 

The Northern Spice Bush Brings Natural Beauty to Your Landscape

 

The northern spice bush is a nicely sized species that can reach about fifteen feet high but is also tolerant of pruning. The leaves are medium- to dark green, oval, and about five inches long. They turn gold in the autumn.

 

The bark is grayish-brown and has light speckling. Tiny medium-yellow to dark gold flowers appear in small but attractive clusters in the early weeks of spring. These flowers later produce clusters of fruits--red berries that ripen in the late summer through early fall.
