Coronation Gold Yarrow
Achillea x 'Coronation Gold'
This form of Yarrow is one of my favorites. My problem with Achillea is I usually give it good soil. It grows better in lean and kind of dry soil. It’s bright yellow blooms are an attention getter. So is the lovely grey/silver foliage. This plant can get big for Yarrow though doesn’t often require staking.
I am going to be planting a lot of perennials in the next couple of days. As much as I try to plant large masses of plants, I have ended up with quite an assortment. I want to collect the Primula seed tomorrow, as it is ready. It seems to work best when it is fresh.
