Tanacetum parthenium, or feverfew as it is commonly known, is a flowering plant in the daisy family Asteraceae. It is a traditional medicinal herb which is commonly used to prevent migraine headaches, and is also occasionally grown for ornament. It is also commonly seen in the literature by its synonyms, Chrysanthemum parthenium and Pyrethrum parthenium. Other common names include Featherfew, featherfoil, flirtwort, bachelor’s buttons, bride’s buttons.
The plant is a herbaceous perennial that grows into a small bush up to 70 cm high with pungently-scented leaves.
Feverfew is native to Eurasia, specifically the Balkan Peninsula, Anatolia and the Caucasus, but cultivation has spread it around the world and it is now also found in the rest of Europe, North America and Chile.
