One of the more popular yarrows and garden plants is the Achillea Moonshine Yarrow. The Moonshine is a yarrow that proves valuable in the landscape because the foliage and yellow flowers combine beautifully with trees, shrubs, and other perennials. The Moonshine Yarrow's flat-topped, canary yellow flower clusters with soft silver foliage lighten up the garden. This is a clump-forming yarrow selection that blooms over a long period beginning in early summer. Yarrow plants will re-bloom if cut back after the first round of flowering. As with most yarrows, the Achillea Moonshine is an excellent choice for a lawn substitute.
Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Achillea Moonshine Yarrow is one of the easiest perennial plants to grow and is a good choice for beginners.
All it needs is full sun and well-drained soil. It thrives in average to poor soil and is drought tolerant once established. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be tall and floppy. After the flowers have faded, cut the plant back by half. This will likely stimulate a second flush of blooms in late summer. Do not let plants go to seed. Most varieties do not come true from seed. Divide every few years to keep plants to a manageable size.
Achillea Moonshine Yarrow is grown in pint size pots.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
