Calycanthus ssp. There are two species with red flowers: Calycanthus floridus (Carolina Allspice) and Calycanthus occidentalis (California Spicebush). I know California Spicebush smells like old red wine barrels.

The petals of occidentalis are typically narrower giving it a more spidery appearance. I think floridus is more likely.

It sure looks like Carolina Allspice (Calycanthus floridus) to me.

The oldest and most common cultivar is,


Other cultivars like 'Aphrodite', 'Dark Secret', & 'Solar Flare' are similar-looking, too.
