This bush grows lushly on a hill beside my houe. The flowers bloom in the spring and are a deep purple to black color. What could it be? The bunnies love it!

    This is a sweet shrub – Calycanthus floridus –
    (smells like strawberries).

    It’s Sweet Betsy (Calycanthus floridus), also known as Carolina allspice, sweet shrub, and several other names. It’s not much to look at, but its fragrance is divine!
