Forest Green Anise is a tender upright-rounded evergreen shrub with glossy, olive green foliage that has a pleasant fragrance. The flowers are insignificant but are followed by the non-edible star-shaped seed capsules that have a licorice scent - DO NOT INGEST! The plant is not a substitute for the culinary spice and flavorings obtained from Illicium verum. Grows best in rich, moist well-drained soils.
- Mature size is 6-12 feet tall / 6-8 feet wide
- Hardy in zones 7-9
- Part Shade, Full Shade
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
