HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: Yellow anise-tree grows into an upright rounded mass and is excellent for screening purposes. Its leaves have a pleasant licorice-like aroma when crushed. This versatile shrub normally grows in moist woods and swamps and is tolerant of wet soil. However, it thrives in normal garden soil, and is fairly drought-tolerant once established. Its growth will be thicker and denser in full sun.
