Maintenance- Design- Planting Tips

Yarrow MoonshineAchillea 'Moonshine' is a reliable mid-summer bloomer. It is a very strong yellow, so it will stand out in your garden.

These plants require very little maintenance. We regularly deadhead the spent flowers to keep a fresh look.
Vigorous clumps can be divided in the winter and given away to friends.

These plants are magnets for butterflies and beneficials insects. The flowers have lots of nectar and the flat shape of the flower serves as a perfect landing pad for butterflies.
