I have a patch of these that seems to manage to overwinter and come back each year (zone 7). Good for pasta con le sarde and fritters. But most of all it makes a great finocchietto liquer. Pollinators love it too.

I planted the seeds as soon as I received them. It grew fast. The fennel is beginning to flower. I brought back wild fennel seeds found along the road in Sicily. It's not the same wild fennel I found. The plants look different. I'll pass judgment after I make fennel sausage with the seeds.
