Feverfew – Tanacetum parthenium

Life cycle: Perennial / Ease of propagation: Difficult / Hardiness zone: 5-8

Feverfew is an aromatic perennial with long lasting, small daisy-like flowers. It has numerous uses which makes it an ideal herb for every garden. We are offering seeds of the “Magic Lime” variety which has beautiful pale yellow double blooms.

Feverfew’s many benefits include:

Medicinal: Tea from dried flowering parts is used to relieve migraines, indigestion and period pain. Eat one to two leaves a day can prevent onset of migraines.

Ornamental: Prolific filler flower and a great dried flower. Branches placed in linen will also discourage moths.

Pollinator: Bees and other pollinators love feverfew. Place the plants near trees to encourage pollination.

Insecticide: The flowers can be used as an insecticide similar to pyrethrum: “Steep 1 cupful of the dried flowers in one litre of hot soapy water for an hour. Strain, then allow to cool slightly before use” (Plants for a Future).

*Feverfew can cause allergic reactions, including contact dermatitis and gastrointestinal problems. When the herb is chewed or taken orally it can cause mouth ulcers and swelling and numbness of the mouth. Feverfew should not be taken by pregnant women (Plants for a Future).

Feverfew prefers full sun and well drained soil. It blooms prolifically in the summer and if deadheaded early, it will bloom again in the fall before going to seed. Seed can easily be collected from fully dried flowers and feverfew also self-sows readily.

Sowing Instructions

Sow seeds indoors in early fall and transplant outdoors 3-4 weeks before first frost. Gently press the seeds into the soil, but do not cover as light aids germination. Harden off seedlings and plant out at 8-12″ apart. Feverfew is hardy to zone 5, but they may need some protection such as high tunnels for their first winter while young plants get established. Alternatively, direct seed in the spring, as soon as soil can be worked. Most perennials will be stronger and more vigorous when planted in the fall.
