Tell Nestlé: Stop Trying to Patent a Natural Cure - Nigella sativa -- more commonly known as fennel flower -- has been used as a cure-all remedy for over a thousand years. It treats everything from vomiting to fevers to skin diseases, and has been widely available in impoverished communities across the Middle East and Asia.
Fennel (foeniculum vulgare) - Fennel's fine-texture foliage resembles dill leaves. But this easy-growing plant comes in green or bronze varieties. The herb provides a soft, nutty version of anise in the kitchen. Use fennel's texture to soften sections of your perennial border. It looks particularly good among ornamental grasses.
Good photo, yet bronze fennel actually looks much prettier in person. Diaphanous and graceful. Great butterfly food--especially for black swallowtails. Google Image Result for http://plantfreak.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/a76823.jpg
