In Bloom at the Still Room: Feverfew

Feverfew, Tanacetum parthenium 

The Feverfew in my herb border is just beginning to bloom.  I enjoy the pretty white daisy-like flowers it produces.  I must admit that I do not enjoy the scent much, though.  It is a hardy perennial in my area and not only grows with wild abandon but self sows freely.  I have shared plants with friends and still have an abundance of Feverfew herb.  (If you live nearby and would like a plant or 3, let me know!)


Feverfew is used medicinally to reduce fever, hence its name, and is also said to help prevent or relieve migraines.  If you'd like to learn more about the historical uses of this herb, see this page at Botanical.com- Feverfew.

To purchase seeds, dried Feverfew, or a tincture- Mountain Rose Herbs is my supplier of choice for all things herbal.
