The Bananappeal Illicium (Illicium parviflorum 'Bananappeal') is a captivating and aromatic evergreen shrub, renowned for its striking chartreuse foliage and unique star-shaped flowers. This standout plant offers year-round interest, making it an excellent choice for gardeners seeking to add a touch of visual intrigue and a pleasant fragrance to their landscapes.

The Overall Plant

The Bananappeal Illicium is a medium-sized, slow-growing shrub that typically reaches heights of 3-4 feet and a similar width. The plant features evergreen, leathery leaves that are a vibrant chartreuse color, adding a lively and eye-catching contrast to the landscape. The shrub has a dense, rounded growth habit, making it well-suited to a variety of landscape uses, including borders, hedges, and accent plantings.

This versatile plant thrives in a range of growing conditions, flourishing in both full sun and partial shade. It prefers moist, well-draining, acidic soil and benefits from regular watering, especially during periods of dry weather. The Bananappeal Illicium is relatively low-maintenance and is not typically bothered by pests or diseases.

The Flowers

The Bananappeal Illicium is prized for its unique, star-shaped flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer. The flowers are small and yellowish-green, often appearing in clusters along the branches. While the flowers are not particularly large or showy, they emit a pleasant, sweet fragrance that adds a sensory element to the garden. The blooms also attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies, further enhancing the plant's appeal.

The Fruit

The Bananappeal Illicium does produce fruit, but it is not considered a significant feature of this plant. The fruit is a small, star-shaped capsule that matures in the fall, eventually releasing small, winged seeds. The primary focus of the Bananapeal Illicium is its striking chartreuse foliage and aromatic flowers, which contribute to its ornamental value in the landscape.
