Calycantus praecox is a shrub or small deciduous tree up to 3.5-4 m tall. The foliage is messy and very branched. The leaves are lanceolate and elongated, light green in color and appear in the spring season. A peculiarity of this species is the very early flowering which occurs between January and March.
