Achillea sibirica var. camtschatica 'Love Parade'
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.

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

In my experience, this is not a spreading yarrow. It can probably be divided as most perennials, but doesn't make a nuisance of itself.
|Pat Mulligan||Mar 25, 2009||I have about 20 lbs. of seed collected near Two Rivers, Alaska. Is there a market for this seed anywhere?|
|carolyn kentucky||May 26, 2010||i planted this last year and it didnt bloom. foliage is healthy what is your suggestion.|
Is it in a mostly sunny location? In any case, I suggest you wait and see what happens this year.
