A febrifuge, mentioned in Moreta, Dragonlady of Pern, it's never described, but numerous Earth plants have fever-reducing qualities, though none are ferns. It is used in a tonic, on humans as well as on runnerbeasts. This may be a misspelling of one of the common names of the Terran Chrysanthemum parthenium: feverfew.
