Question:"We have had inquiries concerning the use of the "Turfing Daisy" as a grass substitute. This apparently is a low-growing plant which only needs to be cut once or twice during the growing season. As we have no knowledge of its identity, I would be glad if you could furnish me with any information you have on the subject."
Source of Question:Ontario
Answer/Response:"The plant referred to is Matricaria tchihatchewi. It is one of several plants that may be useful for lawn purposes under favorable conditions. However, it does not overwinter any too well and requires excessive moisture. Although under very limited conditions it may produce good turf, it can in no way be considered as a satisfactory substitute for grass."
