Spicebush

A slow-growing upright, woody shrub with loose spreading branches and large ovate leaves.  Pale yellow flowers sprout from the dark stems in spring just before the leaves grow.  The small flowers give way to bright red glossy fruits in the fall, about the same time that the leaves turn a golden yellow color. Birds love the small fruits.  This plant is dioecious, so there needs to be a male and female plant in close proximity for the female to produce berries.
