Feverfew - Live Plant Frequently Asked Questions

Is Feverfew an annual or perennial plant?

Feverfew (Tanacetum Parthenium) is a perennial plant that can survive for several years under the right conditions. It may die back to the ground during winters and regrows during spring from the root. With proper care, it may continue to bloom and prosper for years, providing you with beauty and benefits season after season.


How much space should be needed to grow Feverfew?

Feverfew is a relatively small plant that typically reaches a height of 12 to 24 inches and a width of 12 to 18 inches. It does not require much space to grow and can be spaced about 12 inches in between or grown in a pot/container of as small as 6” inches.


What zone does Feverfew grow in?

Feverfew can grow in a wide range of climates, but it is considered hardy in USDA growing zones 5-9. It can tolerate a minimum temperature range of -20 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit and can grow in areas that bear moderate climates. In warmer regions, it may benefit from the hot afternoon sun and needs frequent watering during hot, dry weather. In colder regions, it may need some protection from harsh winter weather by mulching around the base of the plant to insulate the root.


When should I harvest Feverfew?

Feverfew can be harvested throughout the growing season but the best time to harvest it is in the early morning after the dew has evaporated. The plant’s essential oils are at their peak concentration at this time which makes for a more potent and flavorful harvest. For medicinal purposes, harvest feverfew before it goes to seed because the concentration of phytoactive compounds begin to decrease in leaves and flowers during the fertilization process.


Does Feverfew flower or fruit?

Feverfew produces small, daisy-like flowers that bloom in clusters, typically white with yellow centers that emit a pleasant, sweet fragrance. After pollination, the flowers fade and small brownish-black seed heads develop which contain plant seeds. These seed heads are considered dry and papery fruits, containing nothing but plant seeds.
