Pulicaria dysenterica, or common fleabane is a species of fleabane in the daisy family. It is native to Europe and western Asia. Pulicaria dysenterica is perennial and can form dense clusters of plants, spreading by its roots. It flowers at its maximum height of about 60 centimetres (2.0 ft). Fleabane’s common name comes from its former use as an incense to drive away insects. Other past uses include treatments for dysentery.
