Achillea The Pearl Ground Cover
Achillea ptarmica The Pearl (Sneezewort)
Delicate sprays of pure white pom-pom flowers held above sprays of deep green foliage through the Summer months, an easy plant that will develop into a pleasing mound of ground covering foliage and flowers that demands little attention. A staple plant in Gertrude Jekyll’s garden designs. Once established this is a very drought tolerant plant.
When planting Achillea The Pearl 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.
