Fresh Alternatives: Japanese Spicebush

(Lindera obtusiloba)

Instead of Japanese maple, try this vase-shaped shrub with unusual mitten-like leaves. This spicebush boasts rose-tinged new growth in spring, golden fall foliage, and fragrant yellow blooms in late winter. Partial shade; 20 feet tall and wide. Zones 4-9.
