Description Germination
Resembling its cousin, Calycanthus floridus, in leaf and form, this species' notable feature are the camellia-magnolia like 'cup and saucer' thick waxy blooms which appear May to July.  The saucer is made up of layers of pale ivory pink petals (really tepals) with an inner cluster or cup of beeswax golden yellow of curved petals.  Truly unique.  Lovely butter yellow fall colour.  Foliage of this species tends to be more round than its North American Cousins.  Mature plants reach 2-3 meters in height and sometimes over 3 meters in width.  Be careful when pruning as it flowers on new wood.  Blooms at a young age. Pest free and deer don't seem to bother it.
