This hardy perennial gets its name from the distinctive petals that surround the eye: long and narrow, slightly fluted, with a spoon-shaped tip. These 3-4" daisy-like flower heads will bloom all over the aromatic, mounding foliage of this plant. Yellow Quill develops a root system strong enough to outlast even zone 3 winters when planted in the spring, returning stronger the next year. Plant with plenty of space in between to get the full mound effect, whether in a border garden or a container. Deer will avoid Yellow Quill, but butterflies will find it irresistible.

Provide adequate spacing to get the full effect of the ball-shaped appearance. Requires ample moisture during growing season. Mums grown under moisture stress do not achieve the desired size. Set in ground at same level as growing in the pot.
Mulch in late fall to prevent frost heave as winter weather freezes then thaws.

Aromatic, alternate deeply lobed, dark green leaves, gray underneath.
