Feverfew is a perennial plant that grows in North and South America and Europe. The leaf is commonly used to prevent migraines and support conditions like rheumatoid arthritis (RA), allergies, asthma, tinnitus, and irregular periods, among others. Feverfew is thought to have antihistamine and anti-inflammatory benefits. By the way, feverfew looks similar to chamomile (their flowers both have white petals and yellow centers), but they’re not the same—though both are used medicinally!

Understanding the American Experience: Feverfew
Heirloom plants are open-pollinated plants that were grown in earlier periods of time. Americans have chosen to preserve these seeds and have passed them down from generation to generation. The medicinal and cultural uses of heirloom plants have transcended national boundaries, and have been preserved here at the Smithsonian Heirloom Garden as a way to celebrate America's colorful and diverse past. These plants have not changed since then, still smelling and looking like the plants our grandparents and their grandparents' grandparents used long ago. Listen to an audio tour of the Smithsonian Heirloom Garden and discover how some of its plants played a vital role in America’s immigrant traditions, early consumer practices, and medicinal folk traditions.
