Spice Bush


This bulky clump-forming California native has lush, bright green, lance-shaped foliage that turns a warm yellow in the fall. Brownish red flowers resemble small water lilies and appear in mid- to late-spring and summer. When crushed or bruised, foliage and flowers give off a spicy aroma resembling wine barrels. Although they can be trained to a small multistemmed tree they are most useful as a background shrub or screen.
