This decorative and pungent perennial was once important medicinally but is now seldom used, although it is a useful insect-repellent ingredient of pot-pourri. The curled and variegated forms are particularly attractive and less vigorous, which commends them for smaller gardens for the best colour, plant the variegated forms in light shade. Tansy is an easy-going plant that thrives, and may even be invasive, in most positions except where very wet, and it makes an excellent container plant when grown in a large pot and kept well-watered in summer.

I've always loved this plant , due to its all year round silver foilage , but when it then flowers its an absolute delight! Remember though it will always be thankful of a good hair cut in March/April time if it is looking scaggy or lossing shape in the middle. It will lookvery sorry for a itself for a few weeks but then when you see it flower in the summer ... you will know it was the right thing to do !
