<i>Achillea</i> ‘Taygetea (cream form)’

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.

Making its way from the Middle East to England in 1640, this refined form first caught our eye at Bernwode Plants, a small nursery in England.Making its way from the Middle East to England in 1640, this refined form first caught our eye at Bernwode Plants, a small nursery in England.

Large finely feathered broad leaves, bathed in hushed silvery greens, compose a sturdy well-groomed clump that looks impeccable all season. Luminous umbels of clustered pale cream flowers bloom later and longer than most Yarrows, affording a welcome place for the eye to rest amid the lush greens and more boisterous blooms associated with summer.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 18" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
