Tanacetum 'Isla Gold' probably would not have made into the US market if it hadn't been for our friend Viki Ferreniea who shared this with us in 1999. I hadn't seen a plant this exciting in quite a while and, after introducing it in 2001, it's still popular over a decade later. The amazing dwarf Tanacetum 'Isla Gold' originated in the now-defunct Isla Nursery in Cambridgeshire, UK. When planted in an average-to-dry site, the brilliant, lacy, deer-resistant foliage emerges bright gold in early spring and remains so until frost. Golden tansy is an easy-to-grow herb that doesn't spread around like regular tansy and is gorgeous where golden foliage is needed in the perennial border. It truly proves to be a beacon all summer...superb!
