Illicium floridanum (Purple Anise)
Purple anise. An upright, evergreen shrub with aromatic foliage. The smooth, glossy dark green leaves smell like anise when crushed. Rich red-wine coloured flowers appear in spring, with a heady port-like fragrance. Prefers a shady location with cool moist soil. Related to the Star anise, though this form is not edible as it is toxic.
