Achillea Summerwine Ground Cover
Long and strong stems support large flat heads of white eyed, wine red flowers that appear throughout the summer months, held above attractive mounds of ferny green foliage. A lovely deep colour that would fit well with all kinds of sunny herbaceous or mixed borders. The flowers are excellent for cutting and Achillea is always a popular plant with pollinating insects.
When planting Achillea Summerwine 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.
