Achillea 'Moonshine'

Canary yellow flower clusters atop silvery-grey, fern-like foliage.

The Yarrows are among the best perennials for planting in hot, dry and sunny locations, providing good color throughout the summer months. This classic selection features large clusters of bright canary-yellow flowers, appearing from early summer through the fall. Leaves form a non-spreading silvery-grey clump. A lovely addition to the sunny perennial border, also excellent in pots or tubs. Combines especially well with ornamental grasses. Outstanding and carefree. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds. Easily divided in early spring or fall. Evergreen in mild winter regions.
