Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

ANTHEMIS marschalliana

Plant Common Name

Alpine Marguerite, Marschall's Chamomile

General Description

Bearing long-lasting, daisy-like flowers in summer, alpine marguerite is also notable for its aromatic gray leaves. Native to the Caucasus region and northern Turkey, it is a low, mounding plant with fernlike, deeply lobed, silvery to gray-green leaves. In late spring or early summer, small daisies, with yellow petals and a yellow central disc, are held above the foliage. Bees and butterflies visit the blooms.

Alpine marguerite must grow in soils with good drainage and full sun to partial shade. It hot climates, more shade is recommended. It has a tendency to rot during moist winters. Use it in the front of a mixed perennial border or in a rock garden nestled among other alpine plants and architectural stones.
