Feverfew has long been one of my favorite foliage/filler type plants. They’re super easy to grow here in my garden and offer an absolute abundance of flowers each spring/summer. This season, I was fortunate enough to be able to try a few of the more expensive varieties that I had never grown before.
Above, is ‘Virgo’ feverfew. I was most excited to grow ‘Virgo’ feverfew because of its crisp white ball form. However, I was disappointed to see that the flowers in my garden quickly became dirtier and dirtier looking each time it rained. By the time that I was finally able to harvest them, I was left with large sprays of brownish flowers. This is definitely the result of gardener error. Next time, I’ll be ready to pick them at the right time!
The ‘Magic Lime Green’ feverfew were much more forgiving in terms of harvest time. As you can see, they differ in color and in form. I really like how the ‘Magic Lime Green’ feverfew have bright yellow-green centers to each flower. They also held very well in the garden, so that the harvest window for cut flower arrangements was much larger.
Overall, I really enjoyed having both varieties of feverfew growing in the garden. Have you ever grown either of these varieties? What was your experience? I’d love to hear all about it in the comment section below! Thanks so much for visiting the blog!
One thought on “In Bloom: ‘Virgo’ Feverfew and ‘Magic Lime Green’ Feverfew”
I grew Virgo feverfew some years ago, but mine was nowhere near as full & luscious as yours! I may have to try it again. I grew them for a dried flower. It’s been hard for me to find a white filler
flower for fresh & dried arrangements.
