Foeniculum vulgare dulce 'Rubrum'
(hardy in zones 5-11+)
When to Sow:
Ease of Germination:
Elegant, copper lacy foliage bursts with a potent delightful mild nutty anise flavour aroma. Seeds can be used in savoury baking while leaves can add flavour to soups, salads and vegetables. A common component in Indian garam malsala and Chinese five-spice powder. It can also be brewed into tea! Has been highly regarded since ancient times, especially as a digestive aid, stimulating appetite and digestive enzymes as well as relieving gas. Used as a flavouring in cough remedies, as it helps calm coughs. May be used to increase milk flow to breastfeeding mothers. Its unique colour makes it an eye catching accent plant especially when adorned with flat clusters of yellow flowers. A hardy perennial that requires little maintenance and will have no trouble coming back year after year in zones 5 and above. Should be situated in a sunny spot in fertile soil. Height 6 feet.
