Comments about High Country Gardens Tanacetum densum ssp. amani:
This plant makes me happy with its cheery personality; it really does seem to have a life of its own! Maybe it's because it is so springy and plush and it does so well in inhospitable territory. It's a very optimistic plant which seems to see potential in the most dismal of environments. ;)
I ordered three "just to see" and they arrived in late summer/early fall. They were a little bit "smooshed" looking from their journey, but when I planted them, they immediately "SPROINGED" back to life, even though there was a horrible, dry and sunny, hot windstorm that day and the other plants that I put in at the same time really struggled or even died. They recovered so quickly that I was amazed! We live in zone 7 in the southwestern high desert (5000+ feet elevation). I planted them on a well drained, full sun slope that is a mix of soil and gravel and loose road base (by our driveway, pretty gnarly spot where pretty much everything else including succulents are unhappy). It's doing GREAT and the leaves are a wonder; they truly do look like little tufts of feathers!

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
