Achillea ageratifolia


Achillea ageratifolia is an unusual yarrow forming aromatic, silver-green, mounds covered in pure white daisies with light yellow centres.

Few realize that Achillea is in the Aster family but it is Greek yarrow, A. ageratifolia, that gives it away. This unusual species has aromatic, linear, lightly toothed, silver-green, lavender-like foliage forming low, spreading mounds covered in pure white daisies with light yellow centres in mid to late spring. Evergreen in mild winter climates. Grow in full sun in lean, free-draining soils.
