Named for its small size, the Swamp Hobbit Florida Anise is a super dwarf Florida Anise that will stay small. Pictured in the pots are plants that are 2 years old! This unique anise would make a great landscape plant! The original plant was discovered in Coosa County, AL and reproduced through cuttings.

This plant has a strong pleasing aroma from the leaves. It is evergreen and appreciates partial shade. It has attractive red star-shaped flowers (just like the normal sized Florida Anise-flowers are not miniature).

    Both plants were very well packed, they had a long way to go. They were lovely and showing the new growth in chartreuse which is why I bought them. This is my first purchase from and I was impressed. Thank you

    Missed a chance to get this before, so jumped at the chance to order when it restocked! I try to plant natives in my landscape, and these should be a perfect replacement for my Hellebores. Very excited to see how these fill in overtime. Arrived in pristine condition despite shipping in June. One even has an adorable flower in bloom!

    First time ordering with this company and it won’t be the last. I received this very quickly. It was so healthy looking with a great root system. I’m looking forward to ordering from this company again.
