Tanacetum parthenium

Feverfew has small, daisy-like flowers on tall stems above strongly scented foliage. It makes a good filler in the garden, and it's wonderful for cutting.

Feverfew is a must-have plant for the cottage garden or old-fashioned herb garden. The flowers are dried by hanging them upside down. The leaves are used in herbal medicine for the treatment of migraine headaches.

Feverfew self sows profusely, unless deadheaded. Cut the plants back after blooming to encourage repeat bloom.

Also known as Chrysanthemum parthenium or Matricaria parthenium. Deer resistant. Hardy perennial in zones 5-9. Grow as an annual elsewhere.

height 30"
