Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) - flowers
The tansy, which is commonly found growing in rough ground, on field boundaries > LinkExternal link and roadside verges, is a member of the Compositae family, whose main feature is the composite flower type. It is also known as a medicinal herb. Tansy tea, for instance, has been prescribed by herbalists to expel worms because it is highly toxic to internal parasites. Its toxicity to insects also delays spoilage of meat, whilst planting tansy alongside potato crops helped to repell the Colorado potato beetle. In former times, tansy was used for flavouring omlettes and for making special Easter cakes, and in Yorkshire, tansy and caraway seeds were traditionally used in biscuits served at funerals. Tansy yields a yellow dye.
