Lindera benzoin 6-12' x 8-12'

Large rounded multi-stemmed native shrub suited to naturalizing in moist or wet areas, singly or in groups. Soft-yellow flowers early in spring followed by small clusters of glossy red berries by mid to late summer. Blue-green foliage turns golden yellow in fall. Edible berries and medicinal twigs and bark.

Scratch the berries, foliage or stems and you’ll know how it got its name: all three have a delicious lemony spicy scent and can be used as a native alternative to allspice. Leaves, twigs and fruit used in teas. Attracts bees, birds and butterflies.

Prefers moist well-drained neutral or slightly acidic soils. Often found in full or partial shade, but at its showiest in full sun. We thought one had died a few years ago and dug it up, only to find that the roots were alive and ready to go. These are unsexed seedlings: male and female plants required for fruit so plant several for best results. Native to eastern U.S. Z5. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root plants)
