Moonshine is a great compact hybrid and outshines the older, taller golden Yarrows.

About the Yarrows. The Achillea tribe are plants of dry, gritty areas, and do not like soil that is too moist or rich. Give yours plenty of drainage.

The fore-runners of these beautiful hybrids have one of the richest histories in the plant world. Long thought of as a magical plant, Yarrows history goes back to Roman times, when it was thought useful in healing warrior wounds. The name Achillea is from Achilles, and the fateful wound of his heel. But it doesn't stop there. Witchcraft and all sorts of magical potions are associated with this plant.

The basic wildflower, Achillea millefolium, has a grayish-white bloom with deep green ferny foliage.

    Comments about American Meadows Yarrow Moonshine:

    I planted this in an area that receives full sun all day long and no irrigation. It is thriving. The height is somewhat lower than I expected but maybe that's because it's the first year. The color is spectacular, such a warm, deep yellow! We have wild rabbits and they haven't touched this plant. Would love to add several next year.

      Comments about American Meadows Yarrow Moonshine:

      Only bought 1 to test in a humid summer environment. Did well and produced good suckers - has disappeared after an extraordinarily wet late summer. Compatible color across a good spectrum of plant partners. Not too tall, not floppy.
