Achillea 'Schwellenberg'

Common name yarrow
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z3-9)
Flowers yellow (June)
Size 2-3'

From seed probably does not set viable seed
detailed seed-starting info below
Seed ripenslate July

Hybrid yarrow, with flat yellow flowerheads and ferny gray-green foliage. It is fairly similar to A. filipendulina 'Cloth of Gold', but its flowers are a paler shade of yellow, and the plant grows much shorter ('Cloth of Gold' reaches to 4 ft), so that it has less tendency to flop. It's been reasonably happy in the sub-ideal conditions provided by our driveway bed, neither significantly spreading nor sulking over its lot in life.


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