Achillea  Sawa Sawa

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.

An attractive gray-green foundation of airy, fine textured foliage furnishes russet-tinted buds, which are held in dense, flat flower heads. Eventually paling to soft yellow, the earthy orange hues turn on the heat for Campanula ‘Prichard’s Variety’s cool violet-blues in our garden.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
