Re: bronze fennel


Fran,
The first bronze fennel in my beds now grows about 9 feet tall by 5-6 wide.
Still looks feathery, but I don't know if I'd want it in my roses. Maybe if
you cut it back in the summer? Would it come back smaller? Or would that
kill it? Mine dies to the ground every fall, comes back bigger than ever.
I haven't had any luck transplanting this. It grows a long taproot and none
I tried to move have survived.
