Illicium Henryi - Henry Anise tree. Likes lots of moisture and partial shade. It is one of Georgia's plants of the year. Grows in a pyramidal shape to about 10 to 15 feet tall. You can limb it up so it looks more like a tree than a shrub. It has scented blooms - if I remember correctly, sort of a red color. To find out more, google 'UGA gold medal' to see the list of Georgia gold medal winners. I think the anise tree was a winner in 2003 or 2004.
