Spicebush (lindera benzoin) starter shrub.This native shrub grows in moist woods in eastern north America, but is an excellent shrub for medium to moist sites in part sun or light shade. Can get up to 15ft. Unique yellow flowers in early spring but female needs male to produce their red berries. Strong scented spice like scent, hence its name. Host plant for spicebush swallowtail butterflies (papilio troilus). Also a favorite host of the promethea moth.
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. If ordered in the fall they may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage but in late fall or winter will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!
All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed. If kept on, I suggest ripping the sides of the pot for easier root penetration.
