Product information "Foeniculum vulgare 'Rubrum'"

Foeniculum vulgare 'Rubrum' is the ornamental form of the culinary fennel, but it is equally useful as it is decorative.
With its high growth, of up to 1.8m, the fine-feathered, bronze foliage and the yellow umbels that appear in July/August, it is very ornamental, both in vegetable gardens, as well as in perennial beds.It is a great partner for roses, in which the fine, contrast-rich foliage adds a special effect.

The dark-leaved bronze fennel is rich in essential oils; you can use the fresh leaves and the sweet seed fruits for salads or dips and bread.
Foeniculum vulgare 'Rubrum' thrives in any ordinary, cultivated garden soil, preferably in full sun, but it also tolerates partial shade.
