Star Anise Shrubs

There are three species of anise shrubs that can be found in Florida. All are easy to grow, pest-free and once established, need watering rarely. Anise shrubs grow well in sun or shade, but will be fuller in the sun. Their name arises from the licorice-type aroma that comes from crushing their leaves.
