An unusual light yellow-green flowered form (like an unfolding lotus) of the deciduous native sweetshrubs, introduced by Mike Dirr. Also known as Carolina Allspice, it blooms in May and intermittently thereafter pervading the atmosphere with a pleasant, subtle fruity fragrance - probably the strongest fragrance of the Calycanthes. The leaf in fall is a beautiful clear yellow. 1.5" flower, 5'x5' dense, rounded shrub.

Minimum temperature: -20° F
