Parthenium integrifolium (Wild Quinine) matures to 4' and has white, dense, cauliflower-looking flowers. It prefers medium soil conditions, and grows best in full sun. Wild Quinine can be seen blooming June through September.

Wild Quinine is typically found in dry areas of prairies and open woods. The leaves have been used for tea in order to reduce fevers, hence the names Wild Quinine and Feverfew.  The flowers attract Halictine bees, wasps, flies, beetles, and plant bugs. The beetles usually feed on the pollen, while the other insects seek nectar.

Dormant bare root plants ship each year during optimal transplanting season: Fall (October) or Spring (April/May)

Potted plants come in a tray of 38 plants and ship mid-May through mid-July. Click here if you prefer to mix/match up to 6 species in a tray.
