The Florida Sunshine Anise is a bushy shrub growing 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide, potentially reaching 10 feet. The leaves in spring and summer are chartreuse-green, turning bright yellow in fall and staying creamy-yellow all through the winter months. Unlike other yellow shrubs, this one stays yellow even when grown in shade, making it an ideal and easy way to brighten shady spots in your garden. In spring small yellow flowers will be seen along the stems, and these become star-shaped seed pods. Use this native shrub anywhere you need a touch of sunlight, in everything from formal to wild gardens.

  • Leaves are golden yellow to cream in fall and winter
  • Chartreuse-green leaves in spring and summer
  • Leaves stay gold even in shade
  • Excellent for brightening shadier parts of the garden
  • Grows well in damp soil and occasional flooding

Partial shade is the ideal location for the Florida Sunshine Anise, especially the dappled shade beneath large trees. It grows in any soil that isn’t dry, and even tolerates periods of flooding. It isn’t eaten by deer and there are no significant pests or diseases found on it. It has a natural bushy habit, but it can be trimmed in early spring if you want an even neater shape.
