Lindera benzoin--Spicebush

List of visuals associated with this text.

     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.
