Planting Guides

Tanacetum (Tansy or Partridge Feather) - is a genus of plants native to the Northern hemisphere grown for their ornamental foliage.

Preferred growing conditions:
  • Plant in most soil types, including dry clay.
  • Position in a full sun location.
  • Mulch with gravel.
  • Water regularly the first growing season to establish the plant. Thereafter, only occasional deep watering is needed, when conditions are dry in the heat of summer.
  • Deadhead the flowers when blooming is finished.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with Yum Yum Mix.
  • Special comments for Tanacetum densum ssp. amani
  • The plant is evergreen and shouldn't be cut back in the spring. In late fall, rake off brown tree leaves and other fall debris to keep plants clean and foliage healthy over the winter.
  • In Western climates that get summer rains, the fuzzy foliage can begin to rot-out with humid heat. If this occurs, cut back hard and plants will re-grow new stems and foliage.
  • It has been observed that Tanacetum densum ssp. amani grows well in dry, dappled shade.

    Hot/dry hillside. Growing well and wonderful color leaves. Mine didn't bloom its first year but the blue color of the leaves made up for not blooms. Very healthy and still showing color after a few freezing nights and one snowfall. Looking forward to spring.

      These plants are wonderfully unique and they draw comments from all my neighbors who stop by on their morning walk to chat while I'm out puttering in the garden. The foliage on these plants is beautiful and unusual.

        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!

        Q & A

        Suggested Companion Plants:

        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).
