Product Details

A Victorian garden staple and an herbal remedy for centuries, feverfew is a reliable, fairly drought-tolerant, unfussy plant with masses of small white flowers on scented, ferny foliage. Blooms attract beneficial insects, and are great fresh-cut or dried flowers. Avidly reseeds, so let these "volunteers" decorate your garden and attract pollinators. Also known as featherfew, bachelor's or bride's button, and midsummer daisy. Feverfew is used in traditional teas and has a long history of medicinal use. Perennial in USDA zones 5–8. Deer resistant.
