Common in woodlands throughout Eastern North America, Spicebush is a must-have for the woodland garden. With very early spring yellow flowers, bold and lustrous summer texture and brilliant autumn foliage and berry clusters, Spicebush is one of the most important shrubs of the central hardwoods. Birds love the berries, and the plant also serves as a host for the Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly larvae.
Plant spicebush in moist to dry soil in partial to full shade. Plants may need water in dry spells the first year, but prove to be relatively drought-tolerant once established.
Our Quart SuperPlug fabric containers offer quick rooting and establishment, with accelerated growth compared to standard or bareroot stock. Plants are pruned to 12 inches tall to encourage branching, and should begin blooming within 2-3 years from planting.
