Where Are The White Petals?

Published by at 7:30 am under Plants

Gardeners in Maine have told me this flower is a real pain.  It’s a perennial that’s hard to get rid of if it’s in your yard.

Originally from Eurasia, Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) looks like a daisy without any white petals.  It was brought to North America as a medicinal herb but it grows too well in Maine’s coastal climate.

I often see it by the side of the road and wonder … where are the white petals?
