The beautiful flat flowerheads appear throughout Summer, yellow eyed and orange red in colour held about attractive ferny foliage. A wonderful cut or dried flower and always popular with all kinds of pollinating insects. These are great plants for ‘prarie planting’ and they go very well with tall, upright or architectural plants, especially grasses. Very easy to grow and drought resistant once established.
When planting Achillea The Beacon 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.
