Plant Features

If there was a category for fragrance Aphrodite Calycanthus would also win that award. Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty and pleasure inspired its name. The reason will be quite apparent the first time you see her bloom and partake of her heavenly aroma. Bearing startling magenta-colored, magnolia-like, 3 to 4-inch blossoms, Aphrodite will bloom in the summer and again in early fall. Aphrodite blooms on old wood so pruning is only needed to shape, thin, or to remove older woody branches and is best accomplished after flowering.
