Looking for a beautiful and fragrant addition to your garden? Look no further than Calycanthus floridus, also known as Carolina Allspice, Eastern Sweetshrub, or Common Sweetshrub. Endemic to North America, this deciduous shrub produces flowers with a mild spicy fragrance that smell like ripe apples, and leaves that contain small quantities of camphor, making them useful as an insect repellent, perfume, and disinfectant. Medicinally, the plant has antispasmodic and disinfectant properties, and has been used as an antiperiodic, as a diuretic for kidney and bladder ailments, and even as eye drops for failing eyesight. A cold tea made from the plant's root or bark can also be a strong emetic. This hardy shrub is suitable for most fertile soils and can grow in semi-shade or no shade, making it a versatile and fragrant addition to any garden.
