The Chilean Fire Bush

I wish this Embothrium coccineum was growing in our garden but it isn't! It started out it's life on our Nursery but is now growing just down the road at Norbert Kinnen's Big Phat Plants Nursery.

Sinocalycanthus chinensis

One of our favorite June flowering plants is the Chinese Sweetshrub a close relative of the American Sweetshrubs Calycanthus floridus & Calycanthus occidentalis. The flowers look like they are almost artificial which would help explain another of it's Common names the Chinese Wax Shrub. Can be grown in full Sun or complete shade.
