(Tanacetum vulgare) Perennial, to 4 feet. Fern-like, aromatic leaves, with a fragrance reminiscent of camphor and rosemary. Mature plants produce heads of attractive yellow button-like flowers, interesting when grown at the back of an herb border. Dried tansy has historically been used to repel insects like moths and ants; the plant also yields a traditional green dye. Not recommended for culinary use.

What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? None
Tansy is easy to grow here but must have slight shade from intense west sun. Works very well as insect repellent (flies, mosquitoes,ants,moths). Hang fresh bunches around doors in summer. Use dried leaves for use in storing winter clothes.
