Plant Details

A low carpet-forming species of Yarrow, quite different from the taller types grown as border perennials. Suitable for edging a sunny border, in the rock garden or alpine trough garden. It forms a low carpet of fuzzy olive-green leaves, producing small clusters of primrose-yellow flowers on taller stems in early summer. Sometimes used as a groundcover in small areas.

Drought tolerant when established.

Height: 20cm

The yarrow family has been valued as garden plants for centuries and are useful for their wide range of colour and long flowering season. Most are excellent for cutting and drying and all are loved by bees and butterflies.

Common name(s): Dwarf Yarrow

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
