sweet shrub

Sweet Shrub or Western Spice Bush

(Calycanthus occidentalis)

"Upon the banks of streams, or often upon a shaded spreads it branches and lifts its canopy of ample leaves. There is a pleasant fragrance about the whole shrub....From April to November the charming flowers, like small wine-colored chrysanthemums, are produced; and these are followed by the prettily veined, urn-shape seed-vessels....It is from these cuplike seed-vessels that the genus takes its name, from two Greek words, meaning flower and cup."

Mary Elizabeth Parsons, The Wildflowers of California, 1897
