Moonshine Yarrow
Achillea 'Moonshine'
  
About Moonshine Yarrow (Achillea 'Moonshine') 4 Nurseries Carry This Plant Hybrid of Achillea clypeolata?and?Achillea taygetea, introduced by Alan Bloom of Bressingham Gardens in England. This sterile, non-seeding Yarrow selection has lemon-yellow flat-topped flower clusters held high over silvery grey foliage from spring through fall. Remove faded flowers to promote more buds. Non-spreading, to 2 ft tall, this is an excellent addition to a sunny perennial border, in pots or tubs. Mixes well with ornamental grasses, and blue flowers such as sage. Drought tolerant and heat loving, 'Moonshine' is also deer- and rabbit-resistant.
