Info

We brought three golden seedlings of the rare Florida endemic Illicium parviflorum back from a 2000 visit to Florida plantsman, Charles Webb. After several years of evaluation, we selected one plant for introduction as Illicium 'Florida Sunshine'. Our 7-year-old specimen has become a small shrub to 5' tall x 3' wide of anise-fragranced, chartreuse gold foliage during the spring and summer. As the weather cools in fall, the leaf color brightens to screaming yellow, then a near parchment color by midwinter. During the same time, the upper stems take on a brilliant red cast, contrasting vividly with the leaves. In sun, the winter foliage will scorch, so we recommend this be grown in light shade...a stunning beacon in the winter garden.

WOW! Tony Avent named this selection of the Small Leaf Anise. It is is bold and bright in shade and spectacular in sun. I was afraid at first it would scorch in summer sun, but it has been flawless, even in drought conditions. Great for containers.
