I once spotted what I believe to be a nutmeg bush on my old college campus and I love that smell. Ever since, I have been trying to find a nutmeg bush. I am having really bad luck trying to come across one. I hope you can help.

You're probably looking for Carolina Allspice (Calycanthus floridus). It's an evergreen shrub with oval, glossy, dark green leaves, and summer flowers which turn to pear-shaped capsules in the autumn. You can purchase Calycanthus from Raintree Nursery, Inc., 391 Butts Rd., Morton, WA 98356. Phone (360) 496-6400.
