tenacious tansy

Another plant gone too far in my garden and not easily held in check. It has a pleasant flower, leaf, and form but it willfully wants to get into everything, I say tenacious because its roots grisp onto the soil quite strongly when trying to weed by hand. And it has sprung up everywhere around the garden – ugh! Although it has medicinal, culinary, and insecticidal ¬†qualities, I won’t miss it when the garden rescue team takes it all away this fall.
