Weyrich's chrysanthemum is a hardy mat-forming perennial producing abundant white daisy-like flowers in autumn. The white petals circle a central cone of yellow. Native to the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia and the tiny islands north of Japan, this low but vigorous spreading plant has fleshy, aromatic leaves that are jaggledly five-lobed rising from a woody rhizome. It is a late-season source of nectar for butterflies.
Plant this chrysanthemum in a fast-draining soil, either sand or loam-based in full sun. The perennial will be relatively short-lived in heavier soils. It works nicely as a groundcover on rocky hillsides or screes or in the sunny mixed border. Oils in the foliage can be slightly irritating to those with skin allergies.
