  • Low-maintenance perennial plant grows in light shade
  • Can be planted in a garden bed from spring to fall
The Florida Sunshine Anise shrub from the Southern Living Plant Collection is here to bring new life to your shady gardens. This selection features brilliant chartreuse green foliage with a light fragrance. In Fall, the leaves take on a hot yellow color which truly glows in the winter landscape. It's always tricky finding colorful plants for shaded gardens and the Florida Sunshine Anise solves this problem beautifully, as it grows well from Partial Shade to Full Shade. Furthermore, this is a notably heat-tolerant plant with naturally compact growth. It reaches 5 ft. to 7 ft. tall and 3 ft. W at maturity, however, it also responds well to pruning in early spring. Late spring sees the production of non-edible fruit with the characteristic Anise smell. This Illicium is hardy from USDA Zones 7 to 9 and grows well in average quality garden soil with good drainage. Water your new plantings 2 times to 3 times per week for the first growing season and fertilize with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in Spring. These Florida Sunshine Anise are well-rooted in a 2 Gal. pot and will tend to range from 12 in. to 18 in. tall when shipped.
  • Space plants 1.5 ft. plus apart
  • Grows well in average garden soil with good drainage
  • Non-edible anise-scented fruit in late spring and insignificant flowers
  • Reaches 5 ft. to 7 ft. tall at maturity
  • Few serious disease or pest concerns

  • Illicium parviflorum Florida sunshine

Questions & Answers

Is the fruit poisonous to pets?

Asked by: SEV
The Illicium that we carry do not produce fruit. If you're thinking of the Star Anise fruit that is specific to Illicium verum, which is a different species from our Illicium parviflorum.

How does this plant do in Zone 10, full sun?
Asked by: gardener
This plant won't survive in Zone 10 with full sun since it only requires part sun and it grows best in zone 7-9.
