Feverfew Adds Charm to Wedding Bouquets

The first time I saw feverfew in a garden magazine (many years ago), I fell in love with its dainty appearance, and quickly found a place for it in my garden beds. Now I enjoy offering it to my brides who want the look of a wildflower bouquet for their wedding designs.
Feverfew usually starts blooming in the garden borders at Springwell by mid May, and continues through late June. 
It pairs well with garden blooms such as cosmos and zinnias, and traditional wedding flowers such as roses. 
Feverfew is also easy to grow. The single flower form will readily self seed, so I always have plenty of plants each year. And it's a great starter plant for brides who would like to later grow their own flowers!
