Anise (Illicium parviflorum) is an evergreen native plant with insignificant yellow-green flowers in the spring.
With its heat resistance, yellow-green leaves and small star-shaped fruit, this shrub is a stand out in the Southern shade garden.
It is an easy to care for bush that likes moist soil but will tolerate some drought once established.
