Spice Bush Seedlings - Lindera Benzoin
Spicebush is a wild edible also known as or Lindera benzoin. It’s called that because it does contain benzoin which is a medical compound. It’s a common shrub found in woodlands in moist areas where there is a right amount of water runoff or next to a creek. The plant has a very pleasant aroma that resembles allspice and sassafras. The shrub has a very wide flat vibrant green leaf oval in shape that is smooth and minus any teeth or hairs.
The berries begin out of the nodes of the stems and will usually cover the entire plant resulting in a beautiful red and green contrast of the plant that can highlight your garden. The berries are normally very hard, but when squeezed open they do contain a pretty good size seed that has a tough outer shell. When opened up these berries become very aromatic with the pleasant allspice aroma. They can be dried and ground up to use as a substitute for allspice in baking bread, pies, cakes or any other recipe that calls for allspice.
The Spice bush seedlings produces oval long in shape red berries that are very shiny and glossy.
The shrub goes tall and out. Usually at heights of 5 to 7 feet but have been found to get as high as 10 feet when growing wild in woodlands. Their standard growth pattern is to get up to around 5 feet tall and then begin to grow out instead of continuing to get taller. The plant does best in hardy zones 4-9. It can handle a lot of shade or even full direct sunlight and still flourish. When grown in a lot of the sun you will see an increase in the number of berries and flowers on the stems. Planting from a seedling is recommended as they are less expensive and more lightweight. Bloom time is usually in March and is hardy in zones 4-9.
