Many use Anise as a treatment for sore throats, indigestion, and flatulence.  Anise essential oil is used to flavor licorice candy. Try the feathery leaves fresh in salads and soups. Umbrella-like clusters of tiny white flowers bloom in July, attract butterflies, bees, and beneficial insects. Seed heads attract birds.
