What are the cons? none
This is my 2nd year growing Bronze Smokey Fennel. Last year we discovered that Black Swallowtail caterpillars love it, so this year we grew extra plants to encourage more butterflies. The plants thrive in my sfg and are so beautiful to look at and soft to touch. The new growth is plush and just begs to be touched. The foliage is a great accent in flower vases and lasts a long time. Last year I made the mistake of pulling it up, not realizing it is a perennial. Hopefully my four plants will return next spring. I haven't yet cooked with it, but the smell of the cut stalks is incredibly aromatic. Highly recommend adding this to any garden.
