Parthenium integrifolium

Wild quinine

Parthenium integrifolium is a flowering perennial native throughout the southeast. It is predominantly found in open woodlands and prairies. It grows well in full sun to part-shade sites, with average to dry soils. It is fairly drought resistant. It grows up to three feet tall each season, but dies back completely in the winter. Leaving dormant stems up until spring provides necessary over-wintering habitat for pollinators. Clusters of white flowers bloom in the summer and attract many pollinators. Birds eat the seeds in fall and winter. Parthenium integrifolium works well as a specimen plant in a yard, or for restoration projects.
