    We grow it in the butterfly garden.  Used by ancient Egyptians as a food and medicine. Considered a snake bite remedy in ancient China. During the Middle Ages  hung over doorways to drive away evil spirits.  Fennel is also associated with the origin of the marathon. Athenian Pheidippides carried a fennel stalk on his 150 mile, 2 day run to Sparta to gather soldiers for the battle of Marathon with Persia in 490 B.C. The battle itself was also reportedly waged on a field of fennel.  The Gardeners Dictionary: . . . eighth ed.  1768
