Remarkably effective at preventing migraine headaches. The plant has light green foliage and clusters of single white daisy-like flowers with yellow centres. The whole plant has a strong bitter taste, can be grown in any soil, even poor soil, thriving better in semi shade. If growing as a prophylactic against migraine we suggest keeping 4 or 5 plants covered with a cloche or in a greenhouse if the district is subject to severe frosts to ensure continuing supply for treatment during winter.
Maturity 75 days from transplant.
Chrysanthemum parthenium or Tanacetum parthenium
