BananAppeal Small Anise Tree with green foliage

Discover more information on 

BananAppeal® Small Anise Tree

This compact, well-behaved anise tree has golden-yellow foliage and keeps a nice, mounded form as it ages and really stands out at retail. Leaves are wider than 'Florida Sunshine' and it's an improved grower in production. Unlike 'Florida Sunshine,' BananAppeal® doesn't send out long gangly shoots, and plants are more compact and disease resistant. With anise-scented foliage, it is a perfect accent plant in shade gardens, maintaining its small statue and luminescent yellow-gold foliage. We have observed no suckers to date.
