A Garden Gamble: Calycanthus 'Venus'
I am trying one of the new hybrid calycanthus 'Venus'. Not sure it is hardy to my zone. I did not think it would flower this year, but it appears it does flower on new growth. It has four buds. It has a nice sweet fragrance.
This is my form of gambling. If it proves root hardy here and as it has proven it blooms on new growth, this sweet shrub is possibly not a gamble. Having four blooms this years is almost like a $2.00 pay out on a scratch card, right?
