Achillea Moonshine Ground Cover
Achillea Moonshine (Yarrow)
A cracking Achillea variety, grey-green foliage and canary yellow umbels of flowers from May onwards. This is a more compact Yarrow, less likely to flop over in wet weather. Just perfect when paired with ornamental grasses, prarie planting or let them sizzle with hot reds and oranges in a perennial border.
When planting Achillea Moonshine as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
