Friedrich Karl Georg Fedde (June 30, 1873, Breslau (now Wrocław) – March 14, 1942, Berlin-Dahlem) was a German botanist.


Fedde studied natural sciences, commencing in 1892 and graduating in 1896 in Breslau. He was a teacher in schools of higher learning in Breslau, Tarnowitz and Berlin. He became an associate at the Berlin Botanical Museum in 1901 and a professor there in 1912. He participated in several collecting trips to the Mediterranean, Finland and South Russia. Fedde's main work dealt with plant systematics and biogeography. His renown rests mainly on the publication of the Repertorium Specierum Novarum Regni Vegetabilis and its Beihefte for longer monographs.

The genus Feddea (Asteraceae) Urb. was named in his honor.
