When I returned from vacation...

I found some things blooming:
Including this unpleasant surprise:
The label said sweetshrub (Calycanthus), and the leaves look similar, but this mystery plant lacks the beautiful flower and even more sadly, the fragrance. Will be taking a sample to the garden center this weekend--and asking for a credit so I can get the shrub I wanted.

I was ready to dig this nandina out in late winter, but fortunately I researched how to prune it and I'm glad I did. Check out my awesome sidewalk edging.
