My Favorite Plant of the Week

My favorite plant this week is Tanacetum coccineum James Kelway.

It's not very interesting much of the year but when it's in bloom - wow!

Yes, it is that insanely colored!

Tanacetum is a polite plant, it doesn't grow large, it doesn't crowd its neighbors, it doesn't spread seeds into the neighbor's lawn but it does provide a nice, reliable screaming bright splash of color in the early summer garden. I like screaming bright color.


  1. "I like screaming bright color"...that's going to be my quote of the day, I love it!

  2. That is very bright! They look like they would make good cut flowers.
