Description from The Growers Exchange

Feverfew’s great medicinal potential is evident by its name, which is derived from the Latin phrase meaning “fever reducer”.

Feverfew has a long history as a  medicinal herb used for fever and headache relief. This hardy perennial’s anti inflammatory action is caused by the active compound, parthenolide, found in the plant’s flowers and leaves. An antispasmodic, this natural inhibitor opens constricted blood vessels, easing pressure to the head and in joints. Studies conducted by the Maryland Medical Center show that Feverfew is actually effective at relieving migraines and minor headaches.
As an ornamental herb, the small yellow and white daisy-like flowers cover this herb in summer and will last a long time in a vase.  Strong smelling of citrus, this aromatic perennial self sows easily in the garden. Related to the sunflower family, this lower growing herb will spread vigorously if left unchecked in the garden. Also a cousin to Pyrethrum, Feverfew shares the same natural insect repelling qualities because it contains the same natural chemical, pyrethrin. Feverfew is known to repel moths, cockroaches, flies, ants, mosquitoes, mites, bedbugs and mice!
These wonderful plants are not only lovely to look at but they are deliciously fragrant. Just cut them and arrange casually in a vase for a great summer look!  Feverfew can be planted in full sun to part shade and will grow 24-36″ tall.
