Orion Anise

Illicium

Star Flower

Growing only 3 feet tall, Star Flower Orion is a unique Illicium with showy white spring flowers that bloom again in summer and into fall. This adaptable evergreen shrub is adaptable to a variety of growing conditions including moist to relatively dry shade as well as full sun conditions. Deer hate the large, aromatic, olive green leaves. Pest and drought tolerant.

Orion's star-shaped flowers shine in shady spots

Orion is naturally low-growing and compact for low-maintenance hedges and screening

    Add a little "starlight" to a shady spot with the twinkling white flowers of Orion Star Flower. A great problem-solver plant for deer-prone and wet areas, too.
