Illicium Floridanum

You'd think these would smell as good as they look.

Actually the crushed leaves have a pleasant fragrance of Anise. The flowers have a scent like fish.

I, too, love the smell of my floridanum's leaves, and it's been a very tough, forgiving plant -- I never brought mine inside all winter, just covered it in its container -- but I don't try to smell the flowers either! Nice picture!
