    Hi, Can anyone help ID this Plant? I got it from my dd last year.She lives in Utah and I live in Oregon. It has done super here and I would like to know the name. It is fern like but not a fern, and I have never see any flowers on it.
    Thanks For Your Help

    Hi Sandie - your picture doesn't show on this topic, but I saw the picture you posted in another forum with this question and I answered it there. The plant you are asking about is a Norfolk Pine, and a very lucious, bushy one too, nicest one I've ever seen.

    I'm not convinced that it's a norfolk island pine at all. Does it have pine needles or are those ???

    It's not a N.I. Pine but I can't see the picture of the whole bush, it says it isn't there but that's no N.I. Pine branch. That's for sure.

    Looks like a juniper or cedar shrub.

    It resembles tansy or yarrow. So it's not woody, which means it's herbaceous. It doesn't look like any annuals I've ever seen, so I'm leaning toward perennial. Can't really seehow large it is. Do the leaves have any fragrance when crushed?

    Well mystery solved. it's a T.v.var crisp-leaved tansy.

    Said "Decorative,fern-like leaves. Less sented and more compact then the species. HT 2 ft. Thanks for all of the help.
