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.
