In a Nutshell:

This Chinese native allspice is closely related to U. S. native Carolina allspice (Calycanthus floridus) and was formerly called Calycanthus chinensis.
* It is a dense, rounded deciduous shrub that grows 5-10’ tall with an equal or slightly greater spread. Camellia-like flowers (to 4” diameter) with blush-pink to white outer tepals, yellow inner tepals with maroon markings and a mounded ring of yellow stamens bloom near the shoot ends for a month or more in mid to late spring.
* Unlike Carolina allspice, its flowers have no fragrance.
* Glossy, medium green leaves (to 6” long) turn yellow in fall. more...
