Spicebush is so named because of the aroma it gives of
if any part of the plant is broken. This is a large shrube
that can reach a height and spread of about 10 feet. The
plant will grow in shade but as with many plants will fail
to develop good fall color or density. In the sun the
leaves will turn yellow in the fall. The flowers are not
significant. Spicebush is considered difficult to
transplant but has few serious disease problems.
