Notes:

Last September I moved & now have a new garden. This deciduous shrub was here & it measures about 5′ x 5′. It was much smaller last year. It produced calycanthus-like flowers about 1.5″ across in spring. The largest leaf is about 7″ long x 3.5 ” wide. Currently there are 3 drupes of different sizes, the largest about 3″ long.

    Without the flowers I can’t tell if this is either Calycanthus or another cousin Chimonanthus. Check out both genera and see if you have a match. Copy & paste the included link for images & information for one of the species of Chimonathus, the Wintersweet. If you still don’t know, please resubmit with photo of flowers when this in bloom. Best wishes!

    I think you got it right with Calycanthus. Possible the C. floridus (Carolina Allspice, Eastern Sweet shrub) or one of its hybrids? The “drupe” looks like Calycanthus fruit. Copy & paste the included link below for more information. Best wishes!
