Anise and fennel both have a subtle licorice twist, and they are two separate plants, and the licorice plants’ root is used as seasoning and spice. Fennel is an fragrant plant with edible stalks, and it is typically used in soups and salads. Anise is grown in Asia and America, and it smells like the anise seed.

The licorice plant is a perennial flower found in North America and has a long bloom duration. Its flowers look pretty and pristine, and the plant is important to the organisms that surround it. It is valuable to bees and pollinators, and it is deer resistant. The plant can also be of great interest to hummingbirds and butterflies. When it is crushed, the leaves smell like licorice.
