'Aphrodite' is new improved re-blooming calycanthus with larger flowers, and more intense sweet apple-like fragrance. Flowers are very fragrant, bright red, magnolia-like, 2" across. Blooms scent can be described as combination of pineapple, strawberry and banana. Flowers form brownish, urn-shaped fruits in fall and persist throughout the winter. Leaves are aromatic when bruised, and deed resistant. We recommend planting this shrub close to front door, patio or other living areas where the fragrant flower aroma may be enjoyed. Pruning is recommended immediately after flowering to maintain shape. U.S. Plant Patent #24,014.
