Carolina Allspice (Calycanthus floridus)

Carolina Allspice: Calycanthus floridus, Carolina Allspice, is a medium-height, deciduous, North American native shrub that originated in the southeastern United States. Its native range stretches from Florida to Virginia. However, it can survive in some cooler growing zones, as well.

It is a lovely shrub with few care requirements and an easy-to-please nature. Carolina Allspice shrubs are drought-tolerant, heat-tolerant, insect-resistant, and disease-resistant. It's also not very fussy about the amount of light it receives and will perform well in either full sunshine or partial shade, as long as you put it in well-draining, fertile soil. 

Other Common Names for Calycanthus floridus

Besides Carolina allspice, you might hear gardeners refer to Calycanthus floridus by several other names, including these: 

  • Bubby Bush
  • Common Sweetshrub
  • Spicebush
  • Sweet Betsy
  • Sweet Bubby Bush
  • Sweetshrub
  • Sweet Shrub 

Most of these nicknames refer to the spicy-sweet aroma that the leaves emit when torn or bruised. 

Where to Use Carolina Allspice in Your Landscape

Carolina Allspice is an excellent all-around shrub--it's attractive and requires minimal care. Here are a few ways that TN Nursery customers use it in their yards: 

  • Butterfly garden or pollinator garden: The fragrant blossoms will beckon butterflies, moths, and bumblebees to feast on the nectar.
  • Urban garden: Urban community gardens plant Carolina allspice near their food plots to attract the same pollinators mentioned above and ensure food-growing success.
  • Foundation planting: Carolina allspice is lovely planted around your home's foundation--it will help to prevent erosion.
  • Shade garden: This species works wonderfully in filtered shade and adds height to a shade garden. 

The Rustic Charm of Carolina Allspice

Carolina allspice is a lovely, rustic shrub with natural appeal. It can grow to almost ten feet, but you can prune it to lower the height. This shrub has a spread of eight to ten feet, so provides the plant with enough room for growth.

The leaves are dark green and oval-shaped with a pronounced tip. The edges are smooth. The two-inch saucer-shaped burgundy or red flowers emerge on the stems in the spring. Each blossom has up to twenty disc-shaped petals and a pleasing fragrance.
