  1. Illicium floridanum

    Illicium floridanum is an evergreen shrub native to the south-eastern United states especially Florida and Louisiana. It is a close relative of the Chinese star anise but it is not edible. The flowers are a deep carmine red or maroon with narrow widely separated petals. The whole plant and especially the flowers have a fishy smell, hence the common names stink-bush, dead fish tree, or wet dog bush. The crushed foliage, however, has an aroma akin to lemon-lime or aniseed. This plant is highly toxic and not a substitute for Illicium verum.
