Lindera glauca var. salicifolia
Oriental Spicebush | Ok, folks . . .this is a completely cool plant. And we're sure you have the perfect spot for it! A small tree to large shrub to about 12-15' tall and wide, it is densely clothed in foliage so glossy it looks like it's been varnished. But fall is when it really shines. The leaves turn to what can only be described as screaming pumpkin orange color with some occasional red highlights. Produces shiny, black fruits along the stems. Grows in any full sun to light shade site. Deer proof. Makes an excellent screening plant or mass at the back of a border. Impossible to find and highly choice!
