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.
