Parthenium integrifolium

Common name: Wild Quinine

Native plant

Don't be put off by the lack of conspicuous ray florets on wild quinine-they are still quite showy, resembling small white pearls from a distance. The blooming period occurs from early summer to early fall, and lasts about two months. It prefers full sun and mesic conditions. However, a small amount of shade is tolerated, and the soil can vary from moist to slightly dry. Wild Quinine is typically found in dry areas of prairies and open woods. The leaves have been used for tea to reduce fevers, hence its other common name: Feverfew.
