Aphrodite is covered in big, glossy leaves with enormous cupped flowers that look a bit like a deep red magnolia. They start in early summer and continue through the season. The scent varies based on the age of the bloom, the time of day, and the flower itself. Some people say they smell like pineapple, others apples, others bubblegum, and some get no scent at all.

Aphrodite reaches 5-8 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide at maturity. It is hardy in zones 5-9, plant in part to full sun. It is adaptable to most moist well-drained soils.  Prune to shape after flowering. Fertilize with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food in spring and mid-summer.

    The Calyanthus came with some leaves. I have not seen anything, yet. I hope in time, I will see something. Fingers and toes crossed.
