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.
Also known as common tansy and garden tansy
Herbaceous perennial, spreads thru underground "runners".
Tansy will flower from mid to late summer, covered with small bright yellow button-like flowers. It prefers full sun and well drained soil.
Tansy is used in companion planting to repel insects, including flies and fleas. It has been studied and found to repel Colorado potato beetles if planted alongside potatoes (reference - Wikipedia)
Tansy seed are tiny. They can be direct-sown in the garden. They do well in most soil conditions, but probably won't do well in sandy-soils.
One packet = minimum 100 seed, naturally produced for 2014 gardening year.
Sorry, cannot ship Tansy seed to Colorado, Montana, Washington State or Wyoming.
