Tansy ‘Tanacetum vulgare’

Aromatic, golden yellow button like flowers.

Relied upon by the beautiful Tansy Beetle shown in the gallery, great work is being carried out by the charity Buglife and its volunteers to ensure this very rare beetle is not lost forever due to habitat destruction.

A perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the Aster or Daisy family, also known as Bitter Buttons or Golden Buttons, amongst other colloquial names.  Great late nectar plant for many bees and butterflies, other insects too of course as the flowering period is August and September.  You will certainly encourage Holly Blue butterflies when planting this as it is a fantastic nectar source for them.  Loved by moths too, as shown in the gallery with the beautiful Jersey Tiger moth.
