Spicebush is an excellent shrub for shady, wet-mesic to mesic soil locations.  It is deer resistant and the attractive yellow spring flowers provide a nectar source for many native insects and butterflies. The leaves are also aromatic and are the food source for Spicebush and Swallowtail caterpillars.  Spicebush foliage turns from green to gold in the Fall and the ripe red berries are very ornamental and provide an excellent food source for migratory birds before their long journey.

Other names include Northern Spicebush, Common Spicebush, or Wild Allspice.
