Feverfew Magic Lime Green
Feverfew ‘Magic Lime Green’
This variety’s name is misleading because the flowers are actually a soft creamy yellow—the color of fresh buttermilk. Sprays of miniature, button-like blooms have quill-like petals encircling fuzzy, domed golden centers. They look just like miniature chrysanthemums or little suns. Plants have a branching habit and make a wonderful bouquet filler.
Plant type: hardy annual/tender perennial
Height: 24 to 32 in
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 100 to 110 days
Plant spacing: 9 in
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 8 to 10 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvest when one-quarter to one-half of the flowers on a spray are open. Feverfews are notorious for making their water dark and murky overnight, even with floral preservative. To combat this, add a few drops of bleach to the water. Expect a vase life of 7 to 10 days.
