Plant Details

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 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.
