    Customer asked me how to deal with the care of this plant. Problem is I have never seen it during the spring summer so I am at a loss as to what it is. Can you help? I am in zone 4A in Central NY.

    It looks like selinum wallichianum aka Himalayan parsley. Its a wild flower perennial. Get rid of it. It's junk.

    It looks like some type of yarrow to me (Achillea spp.).

    looks like Achillea millefolium, aka Yarrow.

    deadhead through the year. Looks large enough that you could probably divide it if the client wants it smaller.

    It is Yarrow.
    Just cut off the dead shoots. and it will more than likely freeze back to the ground when the cold winter comes.
