Spicebush is a deciduous shrub that may grow to 8 to 15 feet that can be found in rich forests, dry forests on slopes, and swamps. The leaves are alternate with a smooth margin. Leaves produce a spicy odor when crushed. The bark is brown to gray-brown and speckled with light-colored lenticels. In early spring, small, yellow flowers mature in axillary clusters.

The shrub produces a bright red drupe with a peppery taste and scent. The fruit matures in the fall. This plant is sensitive to heat and drought. This plant is dieocious, which means female fruit sets need male pollinator plants to reproduce. This plant has good, yellow fall color.

Host plant for the Eastern Tiger Swallotail, Palamedes and Spicebush Swallowtails. Deer Resistant!
