Achillea x kellereri

Achillea

Yarrow

Legend has it that Achilles used this plant to heal his soldiers’ wounds after battle. As a folk remedy, its leaves are prescribed to soothe abrasions and toothache. We find this sturdy, dependable plant the perfect remedy for many design situations. The broad, flat flower heads enhance horizontal elements, their colors blending with other perennials. Spicy smelling, fernlike foliage and strong straight stems add to overall attractiveness. Spreading and drought tolerant, Yarrow seems to thrive on neglect, can handle ocean spray and will bloom again in the fall if cut back in midsummer.

The silver-gray filigree foliage, sturdy, upright flower stalks and abundant yellow-centered white flowers combine to give this attractive hybrid a crisp, refreshing look. Even on our windy coast, it remains steadfast and lively. In the rock garden, en masse, or contrasted with the bronze blades of Stipa arundinacea or the deep green foliage of Dracocephalum ‘Fuji Blue’, this plant will quickly become a favorite.

Blooms May – September.

Size: 8" high x 8" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
