    Does anyone know if Tansey grows in so AL? Also, where can I find fleabane?

    According to one of my seed catalogs, tansy is for zone 4-9. I planted some of it about ten years ago and then spent the next 5 years digging it OUT from all over my property. If you're going to grow it, you'll want to control the spread of the seeds by removing flowers.
    As for fleabane (erigeron), google it and you will find pictures that would help you spot growing wild (if it grows where you live). It's not an herb you'll find in many catalogs, but you can try a google search on that, too.
    Good luck!

    Don't worry, I don't want to plant it. I know it's an invasive weed. I would like to find some wild to harvest though. I looked and looked for spiderwort and found it in my ditch...I was kind of hoping this would be the same sort of thing.
