Tanacetum parthenium ‘Aureum’.
Long used to aid the symptoms of migraine and fever, this rounded shrub has lovely golden foliage and white and yellow daisy-like flowers that appear over most of the year.
It prefers a full sun position but if grown in part shade, the foliage colour may vary. It’ll grow to about 50cm high by 40cm wide and likes well draining (but fairly moist) soil.
Feverfew is not a culinary herb but it is great for planting around vegetable gardens to attract beneficial insects.
You can dry the foliage and use it in potpourri along with lavender. By placing it in sachets in cupboards and drawers, it’ll help deter unwanted pests.
Feverfew tea can be made by adding some feverfew leaves and mint leaves to boiling water. Let it sit for a few minutes then enjoy. There can be side effects and pregnant women should refrain from drinking it.
