Silver Tansy

Tanacetum niveum

This happy, sun-loving, daisy relative produces dense, cloud-like waves of white-and-yellow flower heads emerging from fragrant silvery green foliage, creating a lovely palette that will entice butterflies to come paint. Drought tolerant and deer resistant, tansy blooms Spring to mid-Summer, but the show must go on, and it will, given the flower’s self-seeding tendency.
