Achillea millefolium
‘Little Moonshine’

Tough, drought tolerant, heat tolerant, and long blooming! This new, shorter version of the classic California native Achillea ‘Moonshine’ features bright, canary-yellow flower clusters up to 4” wide from late Spring to Fall. Plants top out a manageable 14” high in bloom, with the flower clusters held over a 12”x12” clump of soft, texturally-pleasing grayish-green, fern-like foliage. This dwarf variety can be tucked into nearly any sunny bed and looks good massed. Ideal for small containers. It’s tough enough to light up a dry garden area, makes a bold statement in front of taller perennials such as Delphiniums and “Snapdragons” and fits in nicely in an herb garden. Lovely cut flower and is great for attracting butterflies! Plant in full sun to light shade in neutral to lightly alkaline soil and provide good drainage. Cut to the ground in Winter and top dress with compost. Deer resistant.
