Giant Anise variety?
At a local 'seed library' I took out a packet of anise (not fennel), that the grower said has always grown eight feet tall in her raised bed. It self seeds...though very wind intolerant here in central KY.She had purchased her original plant three years ago from a local garden center.
Has anyone else raised this variety? Name, please. Have raised fennel in the past, but prefer anise for biscotti.
All my herb books and research claim anise grows three feet tall max. Grower is organic gardener and applied no amenities.
