New

Tansy is a perennial herb with insect repellent qualities, repelling flies, ants and moths. For this reason it is a valued companion plant, worthwhile growing beside vegetable gardens and fruit orchards.

This small shrub is not just useful but also ornamental, the fern-like leaves bring a layer of beauty to the front of any garden located in full sun or part-shade.
