Illicium floridanum, there's a nice native Illicium flowering in Fern Valley on the Coastal Plain

Yesterday I posted a peachy pink Illicium from China, Illicium lanceolatum, today I found a native flowering along the fence with the extreme SE natives. Curiously it is a bit later than the specimens inside Fern Valley proper, along the stream. They are all finished and I don't know what that means but I am happy to be able to show a native counterpart to the Asian Illicium. This one is also shade tolerant and deer resistant!
