Thanks, Lee Anne. I appreciate your ideas for where to use feverfew. I am a fan and am wintersowing both the single and double from seed this year. I think it would be very pretty in my rose garden, too.

Great article! Ditto on the rose garden usage, I have it at the feet of my roses and love the way the two look together.

I think maybe I remember reading there might even be one that is native to down there somewhere. Mine handle the heat up here without even a blink.

"It will grow in full sun or full shade and in the poorest of soils. I have even had it grow up between the cracks of asphalt paving."
Okay, I think I'll try it! Thanks for the information...I live in clay soil city and don't have the time, energy or money to enrich all of the places that I'd like to grow plants. Thanks.

I grew some from seed last year, and will be growing more this year. However, I didn't realize it would grow in shade. That's great since I don't have a lot of sun. Perhaps I'll move it from the valuable sun it's in now and plop it in the shade. It will free up some badly needed sunny space for me.

Thanks, Lee Anne!

Great article, Lee Anne. Another thing I really love about Feverfew is that it looks perfect in bouquets, and you can actually bring it into the house, in contrast to daisies, most of which smell awful.

Okay, I'm looking for feverfew starting today. I live in San Antonio with black caliche soil. If it will grow here, it'll grow anywhere.. I'll let you know.

It grows beatifully in Alabama and reaches 3-4 ft. if it's happy. Agree that once you get it you'll most likely have it forever!
