Plants: Species

Fennel Foeniculum vulgare

FAMILY: APIACEAE (Carrot family)

The feathery stalks of fennel Foeniculum vulgare make an attractive addition to a garden and waft the faint scent of licorice in the air. But this delicate-looking plant is rather aggressive underground, competing with, and winning against, many other types of plants. In an herb garden, don't plant it next to coriander or dill, or all you'll have is the fennel!
