Tanacetum parthenium, aka 'feverfew'
Love this little plant. Adds a special something to the garden. Also medicinal.

Great banner, Cal.
Almost my entire personal experience with this plant is seeing it in the wild, mostly on waste ground, and along roadsides. I do remember the distinct tang of its foliage when it's crushed. Not surprising, considering it's related to chrysanthemums.

This is such a great little easy & carefree. Reseeds (thankfully),
and even grows in the crack of this granite boulder in our back yard.
See this slideshow
The blooms are only ~ 3/4" in diameter.

Interesting facts about feverfew

Thanks for all your comments & thumbs. Smiling
