There are no material uses listed for Carpesium divaricatum.
The root, or the whole plant, is carminative, depurative, febrifuge and vermifuge
. A decoction is used in the treatment of acute enteritis, abdominal pains, abscesses, poisonous snakebites and arthralgia
. It is quite likely that it is the seeds that are used as a vermifuge - the book is rather vague but the seed of other members of this genus is vermicide[K].
Seed - sow spring in a cold frame. Only just cover the seed and do not allow the compost to dry out. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a cold frame for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.
Division in spring.
