  • Characteristics: A tall herbaceous perennial with scented foliage. Feathery purple-bronze foliage contrasts beautifully with flat heads of little, bright yellow flowers.
  • Growth and Spread: Ultimate height of up to 2.5m and spread of up to 1m.
  • Care and Maintenance: Plant in full sun or partial shade. Fennel Bronze likes a sheltered spot in moist but well-drained soil. No pruning is required but the plant benefits from being cut back to ground level in autumn.
  • Period of Interest: Purple-bronze foliage emerges in spring, morphing to green in summer. Umbels of tiny yellow flowers appear in July and August and are followed by aromatic seeds.
  • Top Tip: Deadhead spent flowers to prevent the plant self seeding. 

Perfect for planting towards the back of borders, Fennel Bronze is a striking plant that provides height and structure to the garden.

It has an aromatic fragrance with notes of aniseed. Bees and other beneficial insects are attracted to the plant, and the long stems are popular with flower arrangers. 

Bronze Fennel is a culinary herb and is known to relieve heartburn and aid digestion. The leaves complement fish and meat dishes, and also work well in salads. They are often used in French and Italian inspired cooking. The plant’s seeds produce a distinct, strong flavour and can be harvested in autumn for use over winter. 

Towards the end of autumn Fennel Bronze will die back and retreat below ground level. Fresh growth emerges in spring and shoots up quickly.

Providing the garden with both height and attractive colouring, Fennel Bronze makes a striking addition to the kitchen garden.
