    beautiful healthy plants

    Posted by KK on 30th Nov 2021

    They arrived in great shape, well protected in their packaging. I am a repeat customer and will keep buying from mailordernatives, a seller that I can trust! The plants have healthy root systems and do great once in the ground. Also, planting these little shrubs is easy, as I don't have to deal with rootbound issues. Thank you!

    The shipping was amazing. Packed so no injury would occur. The bushes were just the right size and price. I will be ordering again.

    Florida Anise

    Posted by Robert on 23rd Jun 2018

    The Florida Anise (Illicium Floridanum) plants arrived well-packed and healthy. I let them acclimatize on my back porch, planted them the next day, and they are holding up well, showing healthy growth after a couple of weeks. These do better in partial shade. I had left one out in the full Florida sun for 5 hours before planting, and it looked a little wilted. But after I planted it in the partial shade, it has always looked healthy and growing.

    What a wonderful shrub for semi-shade and for four-season interest. It may be slow growing but once it attains some stature, it makes a lovely addition to the garden. There are many cultivars along with the straight species and for Z6, I recommend floridanum over parviflorum for hardiness. Deer never bother this which is a huge plus!!

    Great root development!

    I continue to purchase from this nursery because I know I will get healthy, quality plants. The two Florida Anise plants that I recently purchased came in great condition with very impressive root development. I have only positive comments for this company as everything I have purchased from them has been excellent. Thanks Mail Order Natives!
