Artist's Description

The Common Tansy Tanacetum vulgare was one of the first medicinal herbs brought to North America. Some of the traditional uses for the plant in the past have been: to repel lice and fleas, kill intestinal worms and induce abortions (which would often prove to be fatal for both mother and child).

A single plant can produce over 50 000 seeds and, therefore, it is a troublesome weed throughout Canada.

The plant blooms from July to September in deep yellow clusters. The plant grows from 40 – 100 cm in height and has aromatic sharply toothed leaves.
