Florida Sunshine Anise is a striking evergreen shrub with an upright habit and fragrant foliage.  The glossy, oblong foliage emerges chartreuse-yellow in spring and brightens to hot yellow in fall, while the upper stems gain bright red hues.  In spring yellow flowers are followed by delightful licorice-scented fruit. The small fruits are non-edible and not a substitute for the culinary spice obtained from Illicium verum - DO NOT INGEST.  Best color in part shade and moist, rich, well-drained soils.  Drought tolerant once established.
