Spicebush (Lindera benzoin).  Spicebush plants have a pleasant fragrance when the leaves and bark are crushed, and make a nice tea.  This is a small, wide shrub is generally not over 8 to 10 feet high.  The berries will turn bright red in early fall and are a nutritious food source for migrating birds.  It is estimated that the Spicebush can live up to 100 years!
