Looking for a unique and native addition to your garden? Consider the Calycanthus Occidentalis, also known as the Californian Allspice or Western Sweetshrub. This deciduous shrub is native to California and can grow up to 3 meters in height. It prefers a well-drained soil that is deep and moist, but it can also succeed in fertile soils. The plant produces aromatic bark that has been traditionally used as a substitute for cinnamon and all spice. It has also been used in treating sore throats, severe colds, and stomach disorders as it is an expectorant and stomachic. The Calycanthus Occidentalis also contains a light brown dye that can be obtained from its flowers. An added bonus: the plant is notably resistant to honey fungus. Add the Calycanthus Occidentalis to your garden and enjoy the unique fragrance and attractive appearance of this native plant.
