ILLICIUM FLORIDANUM, from Florida (1771), is a beautiful but uncommon

shrub, probably on account of its being tender and susceptible to injury

by frost, unless in the warmer and more favoured parts of the country.

The fragrant flowers are of a purplish-rose, while the foliage is neat

and of a pleasing green.

I. ANISATUM (_syn I. religiosum_), from China and Japan (1842), is too

tender for outdoor culture in this country.
