Venus Calycanthus. This is another one of those incredible hybrids produced by the breeding work of Dr. Tom Ranney at the NCSU Mountain Experiment Station, Fletcher, NC. It incorporates both Calycanthus floridus and Calycanthus chinensis to produce the 3" white fragrant flower. It is much more vigorous than either parent, much like 'Hartlage Wine.' It will reach small tree proportions in time. It seems happiest growing in filtered sun or morning sun and afternoon shade. Give it good drainage with adequate moisture.
