Pyrethrum

  • Botanical Name: Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium

Also known as the insect plant because the flowers are the source of one of the safest of all organic insecticides, Pyrethrum. The white, yellow-centred Daisy flowers contain pyrethrins which act directly on the nervous systems of certain insects such as aphids and mites but will not harm animals, fish, plants or humans. Plants are often sold as genuine Pyrethrum but Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium, with serrated grey foliage, contains the most insecticidal properties in the flowers alone, never the leaves. Grow in a sunny, well-drained position.

Maturity second season from transplant.
