Partridge Feather

You can find pictures of blooming Tanacetum densums all over the interwebs, in landscapes showing what a great groundcover it is with the little yellow ball flowers.

Not here. Here you get this odd photo of a potted T. densum with blooms. That’s my Memorial Day Weekend gift to you.

Did you know this plant is in the Sunflower Family (Asteraceae)? That means it has compound flowers just like a sunflower. Except these are tiny little dots of a thing.

It’s very cold hardy. Below 0F? Piece of cake.We find you should plant them no further than 12″ apart, and 6″ apart is really ideal if you want to get that feathery silvery groundcovery look going.
