Re: new purchases


A funny story about Calycanthus floridus, CAROLINA ALSPICE:  A couple years
ago when I was doing master gardener phone duty, an elderly gentleman called
and asked the name of the plant with red flowers that is planted around
outhouses to hide the smell. It had me baffled but since this was important
to him, he brought a branch into the office. It was an easy id since I have
a plant. A few other MGs said that they heard the same use for the plant in
pre-indoor plumbing days.
