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.

This truly architectural Yarrow blooms on three different levels. Flowers, ranging in color from rust to sandstone, unfurl from terra-cotta buds at 16, 24 and 30 in. upon a cool backdrop of green fern-like leaves and erect stalks. ‘Inca Gold’ mixes well with the scented foliage of Agastache ‘Apricot Sprite’ or the cream-colored flowers of Anthemis ‘Susanna Mitchell’.

Blooms early July–early October.

Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
