Tanacetum, (also known as Tansy, Costmary and Feverfew), is a genus of the Asteraceae family and is native to the Northern Hemisphere.
Tanacetum is available all year round these days in the wholesale cut flower markets and is sold in wraps of 25 stems. At certain times of the year it is a lot cheaper than chrysanthemums and the smart florist will always take advantage of this! Tanacetum also looks great in wedding flowers.
