I love gardening though always learning. Second year in this house which has a well established smallish garden. Lots of lovely plants reappearing.

Tanacetum parthenium

Help me identify this plant. So many plant eating creatures enjoying the flowers, this is one they don't seem to like.

It looks like feverfew to me. I can't remember it's botanical name I'm afraid. I think it's one of those "weeds" you really want! It self seeds all over my garden

It was growing between the cracks in paving stones and I liked it so much I pulled it up and put it in a pot. I wonder if the fact that it's a weed means it's not so attractive to pests. Thank you for the name, I'll add it.

Oh, wow, thank you #malcolmhillen for its Latin name.

Having now researched the names, both common and Latin, I see that it's a medicinal herb! You learn something every day, especially with the help of this app and the gardening lovers on it.

If you're interested @patInnes, one of my garden photos has it at the bottom next to a purple stock with a glaucous rose in the background
