Betony or feverweed is a richly flowering plant with a cheerful serrated leaf. The species is on the Dutch Red List of plants as very rare. It likes moderately dry to slightly moist sandy and loamy soils that are basic to calcareous. It is a sun-loving plant but can also tolerate light shade.

All outdoor plants at Marvy Green are hardy and most are native. Native plants are plants that have been present in our Dutch nature for a long time. As a result, our insects, animals and nature have adapted to it and are therefore more useful than exotic plants. We also try to make a conscious choice for gestation and host plants for certain insects. All our outdoor plants are unsprayed. This way the insects do not ingest poison.

We buy this plant from Tasty Blooms. Their outdoor plants are all perennials with edible flowers. Not only edible for humans, but also for insects in the first place. The plants are grown on the edge of the Loonse en Drunense Duinen National Park in Biezenmortel (Brabant). So it is only logical that everything they grow happens in a natural way. For example, the company also does natural soil improvement. This also results in the plants growing more stable and stronger.
