detailed seed-starting info below

Very different from the common yarrow, Achillea millefolium. The leaves are a nice glossy dark green, long and serrated. Blooms are more compact than the blowy umbels of its cousin, with more distinct daisy flowers. Interestingly, the flowers fade to almost completely white a few weeks after bloom starts.

This one we grew from seed from A. s. 'Stephanie'; the photo shows first-year blooming.

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