Anyone heard of these shrubs. I am reading William Bartram's journal of when he travelled thought Georgia around and between Augusta and Savannah in the 1700s. He referred to these plants as Indian Olive or physic nut. He said Indians carried it with them when they hunted deer and it had the " power of charming and drawing them near. With the traders it obtained the name physic nut, which means to them charming, conjuring and fascinating"
