Chaenactis artemisiifolia ~ White Pincushion
Chaenactis artemisiifolia is a robust annual growing 18" or more tall and when conditions are prime up to 6' tall. Chaenactis artemisiifolia grows in disturbed soil along pathways and after fires. The fragrant finely divided leaves form a basil rosette and grow less densly up the stalk of the plant. The White Pincushion blooms in the early Spring. Wildflowers in our area are best planted with the first of the rains in the Fall.
