    Herb Description

    Among our most popular herb plants, the dark green, feathery foliage of this delicious culinary herb, Green Fennel is as dramatic and lovely in the garden as its cousin variety, Bronze Fennel. It is an eye-catching plant and beloved by bees and butterflies alike!

    The sweet leaves of this herb plant can be chopped and used in soups, salads and stews, and is a common ingredient found in Italian sausages. Green Fennel is also used with oily fish such as salmon in order to improve digestion, or it can be made into Fennel Tea, for a calming effect on the whole body. Fennel's medicinal benefits may also prove to be a potential treatment for hypertension, because of the herb's diuretic properties.

    This wonderful culinary herb is as useful in the garden as it is in the medicine chest and the kitchen. And, it produces a delicate yellow flower in the summer, that attracts and hosts Swallowtail Butterfly caterpillars and many other beneficial and pollinators.
