Feverfew flowers

These tiny white flowers resemble chamomile, but are of a different genus, related instead to chrysanthemums. They are a native wild plant in much of North America, one of many small white composite flowers, but these sprout in the spring and begin to bloom, and continuing to sprout through the summer into the autumn, happily blooming in sweet white clusters. I’ve moved them from my garden into windowboxes and planters; they are not particular where they grow.

These actually sprouted in the cracks in my sidewalk and I couldn’t bear to pull them out—the root would break and I couldn’t transplant.
