Tanacetum Overview

Genus containing around 167 herbaceous perennial species also known as tansies. Some species are evergreen and they often have aromatic, hairy and sometimes silvery foliage. Foliage may be pinnately divided, toothed or ruffled. Mainly this genus is popular for its blooms, which superficially resemble daisies or fluffy buttons. Flowers are produced singly or in clustered arrangements with a flattened top, called a corymb. They consist of composite flower heads made up of yellow disc florets and white, red-pink or yellow ray florets.
