variegated stem 'bronze' fennel

woodlandpixie(z6 NJ)December 11, 2005

I grow plenty of bronze fennel, mostly for the swallowtail butterfly caterpillars and the lovely mix with tall grasses. Actually once you grow bronze fennel it's hard not to grow alot, it seeds prolifically. The original bronze eventually seeded a few green plants. One of these "greens" has the most beautiful green and yellow striped stems. Has anyone else seen this variant? I removed some seed heads and "planted" them in one area. I wonder If they'll reproduce true?

I haven't heard of bronze fennel with variegated stems, but please let us know what comes of the seed when you plant it. Sounds pretty!
