Known as Raulston’s allspice or sweetshrub

This is a relatively new and very rare hybrid between Calycanthus and Sinocalycanthus. it makes a dense bushy medium sized shrub with glossy green aromatic foliage, yellow in autumn.  It features unusual, mildly fragrant maroon flowers in spring (sometimes continuing through summer to early autumn). Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Thrives in part shade, but tolerates full sun as long as soils are kept moist. Prefers a reasonably sheltered position that is protected from hot sun and cold winds. Prune immediately after flowering to shape and to maintain compactness.

Height and spread up to 3m
