  • Description

  • Notes

This hybrid yarrow is notable for its vigorous growth and the profusion of large white flower clusters that continue throughout the summer. The unusual silvery strap-like leaves add interest when the plant is out of bloom. Plant in the middle of a ground cover like Veronica, or in front of xeric blue flowers like Nepeta and May Night Salvia. Grows about 8 inches tall and 15 inches wide. The yarrow propagate easily from rooted cuttings or division, which should be performed in the early spring or fall. Following bloom, one should dead head the plant and divide the clumps when it appears crowded.
Plant in full sun and average to poor, well-drained soils. Deadhead if the look of the spent flowers isn't to your liking, otherwise, leave them be. Deer and rabbit resistant.
