The name allspice is applied to several other aromatic shrubs as well, especially to one of the sweet shrubs, the Carolina allspice Calycanthus floridus), a handsome flowering shrub native to the southeastern United States and often cultivated in England.
Other allspices include: the Japanese allspice (Chimonanthus praecox), native to eastern Asia and planted as an ornamental in England and the United States; the wild allspice, or spicebush (Lindera benzoin), a shrub of eastern North America, with aromatic berries, reputed to have been used as a substitute for true allspice.
