Parthenium integrifolium, commonly called wild quinine or American feverfew, is a medium-size, upright native perennial wildflower commonly found in prairies and open forests with dry soils. Wild quinine is marked for its large, attractive foliage, which starts as a low rosette and grows into large, glossy, toothed leaves, as well as its showy, fragrant clusters of cauliflower-like white flowers that are attractive to a variety of pollinators. Flowers appear in June and last through the end of the summer, with dried flower heads often persisting through the winter.

Growing to a mature height of two to four feet tall, Parthenium integrifolium forms small clumps in the wild, and is an excellent choice for prairie restoration and naturalized plantings. In a more manufactured home-garden setting, wild quinine works wonderfully in pollinator gardens and raised beds, and will grow well anywhere with full sun and well-drained soils.
