Gardeners' Notes:

I have quite a bit of partial sun on my property and am always looking for drought resistant plants that do well without full sun. I have two tanacetums, one in very bright shade (dwarfed by a huge phormium) and the other in a partial shade with only 2 hours of direct sun. Both have done very well for the last two years, been pest-free and non-aggressive. A very nice little plant with lovely delicate foliage.

Has silvery, dissected (almost like a comb) leaves. Bears bright yellow, button like flowers.

Flowers August-October

Loves very well drained soil in a sunny position.

An excellent, small spot plant for a rock garden.
