Feverfew Organic HEIRLOOM Seeds

Tanacetum parthenium

Item #2005

Short-lived perennial (2-3 years). Popular as an ornamental in Victorian gardens, and as an herbal remedy for centuries, feverfew is a reliable, unfussy plant with masses of small white flowers on strong-scented, ferny yellow-green foliage. Since it is a short-lived perennial, many gardeners treat it as an annual, replanting each spring. It is an avid self-sower. Let the "volunteers" decorate your garden, or cut back spent flowers to prevent self-sowing. Also known as featherfew, bachelor's or bride's button and midsummer daisy.
