Calycanthus x 'Aphrodite'
PPAF CBRAF Plant propagation prohibited

Buy Aphrodite Sweetshrub online. Is a new, improved calycanthus with large, bright red magnolia-like flowers. Unlike 'Hartlage Wine' it is very fragrant. This rebloomer has nice, glossy foliage, too.

Very happy with the tree I ordered. It was packaged very well. The tree was a good size and looks healthy. Would absolutely order from Sooner Plants again.
