Plant (herb?) Identification



Any help on identifying these two plants would be greatly appreciated (more pictures can be provided if necessary).

Could the one on the left be feverfew? It's been growing in abundance all over the garden in little clusters for years.

The purple one on the right is a new edition that I have only noticed now.

And as an aside, for herb/edible plant identification does anyone know of any other websites/forums that could provide assistance with this?

Thanks in advance.


  • The one on the left looks like Michaelmas daisy (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae.)  Not sure about the one on the right - any chance of a photo of the whole plant (always helps)?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Amazing - thank you for the quick reply!

    Hopefully these pictures will help you with the one on the right.

    Just had a look at the Michaelmas daisy and it looks like you're bang on.


    Thanks again.

    You are correct, the second photo is Tanacetum Parthenium, Feverdew.

    Sorry, I meant first photo...(white flower, Bachelor's Buttons).

  • Thanks to the both of you for the help!

  • Feverfew leaves taken in small amounts are supposed to help with migrains - just a couple of leaves in a salad or sandwich is usually recommended. image
