Pyrethrum parthenium, or Double Feverfew. - The abundance of fine double pure white daisy-like flowers, which this plant produces through the whole season, will ever make it a favorite for ornamenting the garden. As the seed will not produce fine double flowers in one of a thousand, and as the double varieties will not stand through the winter in the garden, young plants for bedding-out must be raised from cuttings.
To produce fine bushy plants, the leading shoots should be pinched off while young. The pure white of this plant shows oft to good advantage with the brilliant scarlet of the geranium; they are. therefore, very appropriately planted together, and produce a dazzling effect. Or, when planted with Delphinium Breckii, the rich blue of the last blends exquisitely with the white of the Feverfew.
