Achillea ptarmica 'The Pearl'
White button flowers, shiny foliage, spreader. Ours started flowering as seedlings under shoplights, but I kind of lost track of them after I planted them - they're in our very busy, rough-and-tumble driveway bed, where they never reach the lushly blooming mound form so proudly shown in other pictures of this plant. Instead, they pop up with some white flowers out of the jumble surrounding them. Perhaps I'll rescue them sometime...
|germinate at room temperature; do not exclude light
Flowers first year from seed sown indoors early.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|I love Achillea. I have about 10 varieties in all different colors. I think they may be all Achillea millefolium hybrids. You have some interesting specimens that look much different than mine. Will you be offering any at your plant sale?
At most of my plant sales I have one or two achillea varieties for sale. I can never predict specifics for a particular sale until I've actually got them dug and potted, though ;-)
- Seed from '04 trade (commercial source). Baggy 70F with light (63%G, 3-5d)
