Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Tanacetum should be grown in full sun and well-drained soil. It is very adaptable to many climates. Removing faded flowers will prolong the bloom time. Trimming the foliage back after blooming will help to rejuvenate the plant. It should be divided in the spring or in the fall every 2 years to maintain vigor.
