Illicium parviflorum

Yellow Anise Tree

Yellow Anise Tree is a native of Florida, but this broadleaf evergreen shrub grows well in shady protected locations in the Northeast. The lustrous scented foliage is beautiful all year, and even better, the deer don’t touch it. The unimpressive yellow-green star-shaped flowers appear in late spring, and are followed in fall and winter by interesting star-shaped brown seed capsules (not edible, unlike the Chinese Star Anise).
