Spice Bush (Lindera benzoin), potted seedling, organic

$14.00$40.00

Family:  Laurel (Lauraceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9

(Spicebush) Perennial deciduous, dioecious bush to 12 feet. Native to Appalachia and a most elegant member of the very pretty plant family known as the Lauraceae. Spice bush prefers shade to sun and moist, rich soil. In fact, and this story is a bit of an indulgence on my part, the plant was considered by the early settlers to be an indicator of rich soil, and many homesteads were located due to the proximity of these bushes. The plant bears glossy green leaves and waxy, spicy-smelling red berries. Traditional use (TWM): cold remedy. Plant prefers rich, moist to mesic soil in the part shade. Prefers rich soils, moisture. Plant 6 feet apart.

As of 6/29/2019: Potted seedling (1-yr), Certified Organically Grown

    For the spice bush to produce, do I need both a male and a female so they can cross pollinate?
