Achillea 'Moonshine'

Yarrow

A staple perennial for landscapers, this easy-care selection features silver, fernlike foliage topped with sulphur yellow, flat-topped flower clusters that pollinators enjoy. Deadheading promotes rebloom. Like many silver foliage plants, this one also performs best in lean, well-drained, drier soils. It is drought tolerant once established.
