Calycanthaceae. This unique hybrid is the first successful cross between Calycanthus floridus and Sinocalycanthus chinensis, its rare Chinese counterpart. A great choice for woodland to moderately sunny gardens, it is a robust, deciduous shrub with beautiful, unique, 3-4′ wide, maroon, wine-red flowers, each gently splashed with white in the centre.
Grows best in part shade. You can also grow it in full sun if ample moisture is provided.
Ht. to 2m. U.S./China hybrid. ***
