Illicium floridanum 'Swamp Hobbit' - Florida Anise Tree from Pleasant Run Nursery

Illicium floridanum 'Swamp Hobbit'

Anise Tree - Florida

‘Swamp Hobbit’ Florida Anise Tree is a very dwarf form of our native evergreen shrub. The lustrous green leaves and red sea-anemone like flowers are a normal size, but the branch internodes are very short, so Illicium floridanum ‘Swamp Hobbit’ is slow growing. It was found in Alabama by the great plantsman Dr. Ron Miller of Pensacola, Florida, but will survive in zone 7 winters if protected from afternoon sun and wind in winter.
