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.

Our favorite plant this week: What's not to love about this adorable Primula? Steeped in charm and easily grown, this hard-to-find old-fashioned Primrose promises to please with nearly evergreen foliage and a blooming season, extending from spring to fall. A plentiful showing of rose-like buds and splendid lilac-pink double flowers adorn broad textured spring green foliage that forms a generous long-lived clump. Bright shade, well-drained soil and above average moisture will ensure its success.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
