| ||Common Name: Tansy-White|
Common Name (Alternative): Silver Tansy
Bright white, 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide, daisy-like flowers with a yellow center are produced in profusion from early through midsummer. 'Jackpot' is extremely floriferous--up to 1000 blooms are produced at a time! If cut back after flowering, it may rebloom in the fall.
The aromatic, silvery-green, ferny foliage forms a nice mound similar to a chrysanthemum. The first year, it will grow to an approximate height of 18 inches. The second year, this vigorous grower may double in size.
'Jackpot' combines well with just about everything else in the garden. It is wonderful in mixed container plantings and can also be used as a cut flower.
