Henry Anise (Illicium henryi)
Evergreen shrub, generally 6-8 feet tall. Growth habit is dense and pyramidal. Foliage is glossy dark green, leathery. Pink to crimson, 1 1/2 inch wide flowers appear in late spring, emerging from the leaf axils. Not well known in American gardens, but well worth planting. It is a good shade tolerant evergreen, and the flowers are prettier than some of the other species of Illicium.
