June 14, 2016 2 comments chrissy bauman November 6, 2012 - 8:15 pm just ran across this article from a part of a larger article about cut florals in florida from EDIS. have you ever grown this? Illicium # (Florida anise-tree, purple anise, Chinese anise, star anise). These aromatic shrubs require little care and will tolerate temperatures of 14° to 23°F [–5° to –10°C]. I. floridanum # (Florida anise, purple anise) is a native while I. anisatum, formerly I. religiosum, (Chinese anise, star anise) is introduced. Anise cuttings are long lasting and are used as grave decorations in Buddhist temples in Japan. The anise fragrance of the foliage adds extra interest to this crop. Illicium foliage can be air dried or glycerine treated and used as line and filler material. Reply Survival Gardener, AKA David the Good November 7, 2012 - 1:22 am Yes! I actually took a few cuttings and have them rooted in pots right now. I hope they do well… they aren't happy at the moment, but perhaps when they hit the ground this spring they'll do better.
