Spicebush (Lindera benzoin)
Spicebush is deer resistant and has aromatic leaves. The plant has lovely yellow blooms in the spring that provide nectar for native pollinators and insects. Spicebush also serves as a host plant for the Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillar. In autumn, leaves turn gold and can be a centerpiece in any landscape. Red berries in autumn also serve as food for migratory birds.
