•American grown seeds
Tansy is a flowering herbaceous plant with finely divided compound leaves and yellow, button-like flowers. It has a stout, somewhat reddish, erect stem, usually smooth, 20–59 inches tall, and branching near the top. The roundish, flat-topped, button-like, yellow flower heads are produced in terminal clusters from mid-to-late summer. The scent is similar to that of camphor with hints of rosemary.
Tansy was once used to treat intestinal worms, rheumatism, digestive problems, fevers, sores, and to bring out measles. During the Middle Ages and later, high doses were used to induce abortions. Contradictorily, tansy was also used to help women conceive and to prevent miscarriages.
Growing Instructions: Planting tansy is easy and requires little effort on your part. Tansy will want a very sunny location, and only real soil requirement is that it not be too damp. Once the threat of frost has passed, poke holes in the soil about ½ an inch deep and put in 5-7 seeds and gently cover with soil and lightly water. Take care not to over water; only really supplementing water once the top few inches of soil has dried.
