Yarrow Button Tansy

Tanacetum Vulgare


Tansy Filler Flower is a textured filler flower that will add a subtle splash of color to your flower arrangements. Full and colorful, these stems produce clusters of flat topped flowers, almost like small buttons. Strongly scented with a sweet smell, yarrow is often included in gardens to attract butterflies.

Folk lore has it that if you hang the dried bunch of yarrow over your bed that you used in your wedding, you will ensure lasting love.

Beautiful and bright you can blend this lovely flower with roses and ranunculus. Beautiful with a wonderful scent and an abundance of extra properties (think forever love), you're not going to want to miss out on this!
