Eastern Sweetshrub

Native to the Eastern United States, this shrub brings all season interest to your garden or landscape. Fragrant, 2"inch, red, strap-like flowers bloom in the spring, later maturing into urn-shaped fruit in the summer, and finally the aromatic, dark green, leathery foliage becomes a bright yellow in the fall before shedding its leaves for the winter.
