Well done, Anders. The English name for this plant is Tansy. That fits the
description very well except for the smell, which has always seemed to me
more like creosote. Perhaps my nose doesn't work well! In the north of
England it is used in cooking, especially in cakes and as an infusion, but
only in moderation. Too much of it damages the liver.
Although it is native to Europe, I understand it to have been introduced
The Swedish name for it, by the way, is renfana.
