    Herb Description

    This beauty will create a beautiful backdrop for your other plants. The colorful, lacy fronds of this aromatic culinary herb are also very important to butterfly aficionados. A vital host herb for the Eastern Black Swallowtail and the Anise Swallowtail butterflies, for offering a safe haven for their young to mature, Bronze Fennel provides food and shelter to these lovely pollinators.

    Bronze Fennel is a wonderful culinary herb - the leaves are great with fish. It is a wonderful companion to Tarragon providing the same unique anise flavor. Bronze Fennel is one of the main ingredients in Italian sausage and the seeds have a sweet licorice-like taste. You can use Bronze Fennel and Green Fennel interchangeably in dishes.

    Plant in full sun with good drainage and cut back at the end of the season after the seeds have formed. Bronze fennel makes a dramatic garden plant because of its subtle bronze color and wispy leaves. Add it to an annual bed or plant with other culinary herbs for a wonderful cooking garden.

    This delicious culinary herb also has wonderful medicinal potential and helps to ease bloating and digestion. It makes for a soothing after dinner tea! In ancient times, Bronze Fennel was believed to keep evil spirits away from the home.
