Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare L.) is a perennial flower / herb, with a very full growth habit - it can grow to 5' or taller, and 5' or so in diameter. It can spread very quickly, so you will have to remove the flower heads before they set seed in order to contain it. [BR] Also known as Common or Garden Tansy, Scented Fern, Hineheel, and Buttons.
Tansy will flower from mid to late summer, and will be covered with small bright yellow button-like flowers. It prefers full sun and well drained soil. Tansy leaves smell of camphor / rosemary.
Tansy is used in companion planting to repel insects, including flies and fleas. Dried Tansy leaves can be used to repel moths. It has been studied and found to repel Colorado potato beetles if planted alongside potatoes (reference - Wikipedia)
Tansy has been used by herbalists for centuries: for expelling worms, as a stimulant, or emmenagogue. NOTE: This information is provided for reference only, and is not intended as medical advice.
