The Calycanthus, popularly known as “sweet shrub,” has been blooming since April.  I don’t ever remember the blooms continuing for this long.

“Nor must the purple buds of the calycanthus be forgotten. ‘Sweet-scented shrub’ indeed; for let me hide but a single one of these in some fold of my dress, and the spices of Araby will float around me till the evening.”
