Description :

Indispensable? Irreplacable!!!

This fennel, Foeniculum vulgare 'Giant Bronze', has beautiful, bronze foliage, finely cut in strips; it smells of aniseed and is excellent for cooking.

It is beautiful and healthy almost all year round and is great for the back of a bed with Gaura, Verbena bonariensis, Cynara cardunculus, Sedum x Matrona.

Machaon- and a bonus! Foeniculum vulgare is the number one plant favourite of the Papilio machaon or swallowtail caterpillar, which becomes one the biggest and most beautiful European butterflies.

So, this bronze fennel is not only decorative, but useful!

Cultivation: Foeniculum vulgare 'Giant Bronze' grows anywhere dry and sunny in good garden soil.

Maintenance: Prune the inflorescences before maturity to limit natural re-seeding. Cut back the dried stems at the beginning of winter.
