Plant Overview

A useful drought-resistant, dwarf Achillea. Bright yellow flower heads above woolly, grey-green foliage.

Long flowering season from June to September. Fully hardy.

Technically a small shrub, it has a tidy habit. Long, ferny green yarrow leaves, with soft hairs on the surface. 

Happy in any soil except water-logged, it will tolerate very well drained, rocky soil and is very drought resistant.

Recommended uses are as a border flower, in a cottage or informal garden; as an edging plant; in rock gardens, or even gravel gardens.

Loved by bees and butterflies.

Height and spread: 20cm x 40cm (after about 2-3 years)

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): Yarrow, Woolly Yaroow

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
