Illicium floridanum (Red Anise) 6-10ft; strong pleasing smell from leaves; evergreen; appreciates partial shade; attractive red star-shaped flowers bloom all summer. Zone 6-9
What a wonderful shrub for semi-shade and for four-season interest. It may be slow growing but once it attains some stature, it makes a lovely addition to the garden. There are many cultivars along with the straight species and for Z6, I recommend floridanum over parviflorum for hardiness. Deer never bother this which is a huge plus!!
Healthy looking plant. Looking forward to see how it will grow.
I continue to purchase from this nursery because I know I will get healthy, quality plants. The two Florida Anise plants that I recently purchased came in great condition with very impressive root development. I have only positive comments for this company as everything I have purchased from them has been excellent. Thanks Mail Order Natives!
Healthy, good-sized plant. Very pleased.
All items ordered were received in good condition and are in the ground awaiting spring. They all received a nice comfy home for the winter. Will let you know next year how they are.
