Introducing Parthenium integrifolium, also known as Wild Quinine, American Feverfew or Eastern Feverfew. This perennial herb is native to the eastern and midwestern United States and has a long blooming period from June to September. Its inflorescence contains whitish disc flowers and 5 to 6 ray flowers, which emit a pleasant and mild medicinal fragrance.
Parthenium integrifolium grows in disturbed areas, prairies, meadows, woodland edges, and hillsides, thriving best in full sun but can also tolerate part shade. It can adapt to various soils and climates, making it a versatile garden plant.
The leaves of the plant were used by Native Americans for medicinal and veterinary purposes, with the Catawba people specifically using it as a poultice for burns and tea for dysentery. The root is used in the treatment of inflammation of the urinary passages and kidneys, amenorrhoea, and as a lithontripic. Its flowering tops can act as a substitute for quinine in treating intermittent fevers, and one study suggests that it could stimulate the immune system.
Overall, Parthenium integrifolium is a beautiful and useful addition to any garden, with both aesthetic and medicinal benefits. Visit our website for more information on this amazing plant.
