Traditional Medicinal Uses of Chrysanthemoides monilifera
Indications: Administered to people only. Applied in a magical sense. Caution: Harmful to people or animals.
Chrysanthemoides monilifera is a medium shrub (2 meter high) that is covered in yellow daisy-like flowers almost all year. The flowers attract bees, butterflies and other insects to the garden. The ripe purplish-black, edible fruit is relished by birds.
The Bush Tick Berry, Bietou, is an excellent plant for screens, windbreaks or tumbling over rocks. A must-have for the bird garden. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. It requires a protected spot in frost areas. (Credit: Wildflower Nursery)
