Common fennel makes a beautifully fragrant garden plant. The fine and frothy leaves are topped by umbels of yellow cow-parsley-like flowers all summer long. The flowers are followed by delicious seeds. Fennel will self-seed profusely if the seeds are not removed. The fragrant foliage persists well after frost and is one of the great treats of the winter garden.

‘Purpureum’ has smoky, bronze foliage.

Fun fact: Swallowtail Butterfly caterpillars consider fennel a delicacy. Our plants are consistently covered in these amazing creatures!
