Feverfew is native to southeastern Europe, but is now found throughout Europe. It’s botanical name is Chrysanthemum parthenium syn. Tanacetum parthenium. This herbaceous perennial grows two to three feet high with numerous aromatic flowers. Feverfew is sometimes confused with its close relative, chamomile. Though chamomile is most wanted for its flowers, feverfew is sought for its leaves. Leaves can be picked as needed, but the entire plant isn’t harvested until summer when it has flowered. The name feverfew is derived from the Latin term febrifugia, which means to “drive out fevers”.
