Anise is native to Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East. Use leaves in salads. Seeds have a strong licorice flavor and are used to flavor sauces, cakes, tea, and liquors. Not to be confused with Star Anise.
Anise grows to about 18 inches tall with finely serrated leaves, topped by umbels of white blossoms. Wonderfully fragrant, a great addition to the pantry.
