Illicium floridanum 'Southern Star'
Use caution when siting any Illicium species! These plants contain compounds that are toxic to both humans and animals.
Of all of this plants we have available, this one is Shipper Extraordinaire Kate's outright favorite! The leaves are still thick and rubbery, but have ivory, painterly margins and markings against slightly grayer-than-typical green. The best part of this plant is the scent that constantly surrounds it, without even the slightest touch: lusciously fresh and earthy, with slightly spicy undertones. [5' x 4', Zones 7-10]
