A beautiful shrub or multi-stemmed tree native to our region. Resembles a Japanese maple with twisted, spreading limbs and almost circular leaves which turn red or yellow in fall. Good in open spaces or semi-shady areas. The lower limbs may be pruned as desired. Among other uses, First Nations people boiled the bark to make a tea for colds.
A variety of Cameo, this new introduction features attractive colour and a crisp, sweet-tart flavour. The tree is vigorous and a hardy producer. The apples also store well.
Known for its alluring scent as a bush, Common Sweetshrub may be pruned to a single stem to grow as a small tree. It typically gets 2.5-3m tall and wide, and is an attractive addition to the garden or balcony in any form. While appreciated for the look of its deep purple flowers from May into early summer, its crowning achievement is the aroma which some have likened it to a combination of strawberries, pineapple and banana. Calycanthus oil is an ingredient in some perfumes, and the leaves and bark are also fragrant.
