Illicium parviflorum 'Florida Sunshine' (Illiciaceae)
(il-ISS-ee-um par-vi-FLOR-um)
Small Anise Tree

Spectacular colors in all seasons on this new Anise Tree selection, discovered by Tony Avent among seedlings grown by Florida plantsman Charles Webb. The chartreuse leaves absolutely glow in shady areas. Fall foliage changes to a bright yellow, and contrasting red stems make for a brilliant winter show. Grows full for screening even in shade, never browsed by deer, and tolerates a wide range of soil conditions. When mature, 'Florida Sunshine' will be a bright focal point in the garden.
