Spice Bush Characteristics
Spice Bush are low maintenance deciduous shrubs that are native to the American midwest. These fragrant, berry producing shrubs are dioecious, meaning that plants are either male or female. In order for berries to be produced, pollinators must visit male and female flowers. The light green leaves of summer become bright yellow in fall.
Spice Bush are easy to care for shrubs with few serious insect or disease issues. Deer, drought, shade, clay and wet soils are rarely an issue for Spice Bush.
