Spice Bush

Aromatic Plant


The Spicebush, Lindera bezoin, is a native deciduous shrub with a broad, rounded habit which typically grows 6-12' high. It is used for shrub borders, shade or woodland gardens, moist areas along streams or ponds, native plant gardens or naturalized plantings. 


Clusters of tiny, aromatic, greenish-yellow flowers bloom along the branches in early spring before the foliage emerges. Thick, oblong, light green leaves (to 5" long) turn an attractive yellow in autumn. Leaves are aromatic when crushed.


Flowers of female plants give way to bright red drupes (to 1/2" long) which mature in fall and are attractive to birds. Female plants need a male pollinator in order to set fruit, however. Drupes are very attractive, but are largely hidden by the foliage until the leaves drop.


They are easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Fall color is best in sunny areas and the habit becomes more open and wide-spreading in full shade


The caterpillar of the swallowtail butterfly feeds on the leaves of this shrub.

WHAT A SURPRISE!! Review by FlowerGuy

We just received this plant and it came in amazing shape. The leaves were green, the plant was full. It looked better than if we bought it at a local nursery. It was slightly fragrant when planted but hoping that will improve. A beautiful shrub.

I have been searching for this bush for many years!! I planted one back in 1986, not really knowing what I had...I placed it close to my front door because I was told that it was fragrant. When it bloomed that fragrance was magnificent ~ only problem is that I have not been able to find it anywhere. Is this particular bush fragrant????? Could this be the same plant I discovered so many years ago?? If so, I want a garden full of them!!!
