‘Aphrodite’ Sweetshrub (Calycanthus ‘Aphrodite’)

Looking for something special to set you apart from the competition? Add ‘Aphrodite’ calycanthus to your plant palette. Very large flowers resemble red magnolias, appearing amid glossy, tropical looking foliage for months every summer. Flowers are fragrant, though the scent is highly subjective — ask your staff and see what everyone smells! A beautiful, care-free plant for large spaces.
