Identify plants

Asked June 16, 2018, 11:53 AM EDT

My son just bought a house and it has lovely gardens. The previous owner told him all the plants are native. Attached are a few that I could not identify. Could you please tell me what they are. Thank you

1. Carolina allspice (Calycanthus) - a native shrub, fragrant blooms that usually smell like strawberries

2. A witch hazel - can't say if it is native or not. Send us photos when it blooms of flowers and overall shot.

3. Aucuba - not native shrub, but a nice one
