Spicebush: Thriving Native Plants of Maryland
LGS Notes: Spicebush is a medium shrub that thrives in full sun and shade. It is deer resistant, but attracts birds with its berries, and butterflies and bees with its spring flowers. It is a host plant for the Spicebush swallowtail. This shrub tolerates wet soil and drought, which makes it ideal for rain gardens. It grows in woodland area naturally so it is tolerant of shade.
