Help Me Find Sweet Shrub
By: Jessie Keith
“I grew up with “sweet scrubs”. I can’t find them anywhere.” Question from Judy of Louisville, Mississippi
Answer: I bet you are talking about the eastern and southern US native shrub, sweetshrub (Calycanthus floridus). It’s unusual flowers smell very sweet, almost like strawberries. Does it look right? If so, it can be purchased at many native plant nurseries.
Happy Gardening! Jessie
