Foeniculum vulgare 'Purpureum'
Bronze fennel is absolutely stunning. I plant it for its ornamental value and tasty foliage and seeds. Plants can grow to four feet tall with feathery, smoky purple foliage. A must for a butterfly garden – swallowtails lay eggs on fennel. Cut foliage can be used as greenery in flower arrangements. This variety does not produce a bulb but leaves and stems are tasty, finely chopped, added to salads, fish, and soups. A tea from the leaves or seeds is said to ease indigestion. After seeds begin to mature, cut entire stalk. Hang upside down in a paper bag to finish ripening and to avoid self-seeding all over the garden.
