OK, just did some reading on it. They do not in fact repel fleas despite the superstition. The leaves are editable though and contain caffeic acid which is an active compound that has antioxidative and neuroprotective effects on neuronal cells (brain, spinal column and nerve cells).
Great shot Harry! Wonder if the dried plant real does repel fleas...
wonderful flower shot
