Quick Overview:

This selection of the Japanese Anise Shrub has glossy deep burgundy new growth which hardens off to green. Each succeeding flush of growth through the summer will be just as intense, a deep glossy burgundy. The Japanese name, ‘Murasaki-no-sato,’ means “purple village.” This species performs best under filtered sun or morning sun and afternoon shade. The flowers are the same ivory-white of the species with up to 30 petals each, opening in early spring.

Description

Illicium anisatum ‘Murasaki-no-sato’, is a shade tolerant medium-sized to large growing evergreen shrub with a slow to medium rate of growth and naturally has an upright to rounded habit. It is somewhat resistant to short periods of drought once well-established and should be grown in a site with good drainage and average moist to moist soils in an area that receives shade during the hottest part of the day, especially in hot summer climates.
