A new and more adaptive hybrid Illicium cross between I. floridanum and I. mexicanum, the Scorpio Star Flower Anise breaks the mold with a low and mounding habit to only 3 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide and flowering in spring and fall and sporadically in between. A perfect choice for shady home foundation plantings and landscape borders, its abundant 2 to 3 inch star-shaped flowers with green eyes shine like stars against the backdrop of evergreen, deep blue-green leaves that have a wonderful anise scent. That said, in more sun the leaves will be more of an olive green color, but still handsome. Extremely adaptable, this hybrid will thrive in moist or dry shade and part shade to dense shade! What's more, the deer, rabbits and most other pests turn their nose up to it. Get all the details below!
