Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

46. Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare L.)

46. Tansy

A common plant of the roadsides, waste places and hedge-banks throughout Britain, growing to a height of two feet or more. It flowers from July to September. Each flower-head, cupped in green, leathery bracts, is a close-packed mass of florets, so close that they appear like felt. The plant has a strongly aromatic smell, and in olden days it was used as an ingredient of certain dishes, as well as a medicine.
