Tanacetum balsamita
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 4-8)
(Bible leaf) An old fashioned herb that has history of use dating back to biblical times, where it was believed to have been used by Mary to wash Jesus feet, leading to its common name. Was once popular in Victorian times, found in nearly every kitchen garden, and for good reason! A versatile herb that offers a minty-eucalyptus like tang when used fresh in salads, sauces and soups. Highly aromatic, so use sparingly or else it will be overpowering! Can be brewed into a tea to ease pain and digestive discomfort. Medicinally recognized for its antibacterial, antifungal and insecticidal properties. Makes a great perennial border with soft grey green foliage and clusters of tiny bright yellow flowers. Plant in rich soil in full sun as it will become leggy and refrain from blooming in the shade. Height 2-4 feet.
