You won't find any book references to this rare native that grows in scattered Maine localities and also along the shores of the upper Great Lakes. Despite its northern heritage, Lake Huron tansy has been one of the really wonderful surprises from our heat tolerance trials. Tanacetum huronense var. terrae-novae represents the compact Newfoundland form (isn't every plant in Newfoundland compact?) which has furrier dark green, cutleaf, tansy-like foliage which was enough for me to grow this low mounding plant. In addition, summer finds the clump topped with 1' tall stalks of large, yellow ball-like flowers...a perfect topping! Tanacetum huronense var. terrae-novae is a superb rock garden plant for the bright, dry section of the garden where it won't get overrun.
