Regular price $5.00 Sale

An aromatic perennial herb, Fennel is widely cultivated for its edible, licorice-flavored leaves and seeds. The variety 'Purpureum,' also known as Bronze Fennel, has dark, smoky foliage to a height of 6', an attractive backdrop in perennial borders, where it adds a soft, airy, somewhat mysterious look. The large umbels of nectar-filled, yellow flowers are attractive to many butterflies and pollinators and will eventually dry and create a bountiful harvest of fennel seeds. A prized host plant for the Eastern Black Swallowtail butterfly and caterpillar.
