Foeniculum vulgare var. dulce 'Rubrum'


Smokey Fennel or Bronze Fennel

Dark bronze-brown colored foliage on plants that grow 3 to 5 feet (5 ft = 1.52 m) tall. They have an upright habit with a nice lacy foliage effect. The top of the plants are filled with dull yellow colored flowers in 3-inch (3 in = 7.62 cm) umbels. Still loved by those yellow and black striped caterpillars of Swallow Tail butterflies. Plants self-seed but any unwanted seedlings are easily pulled up. The foliage is useful as cutting material for flower decorations or as a garnish.

Zones 4-9

Germination in less than two weeks at 68F in dark. Cover seeds 1/4inch deep with soil medium.
