Achillea The Pearl (For my File)


By Siris

Achillea The Pearl (For my File) (Achillea ptarmica (Sneezewort))

The Pearl, given to me by a neighbour. Thought I had better put in my file although impossible to get a clear photo.

Very pretty. Thank you for the name! I have a good sized mound of it in the transfer bed...but not much bloom. is it full sun or full shade? I have lots of A. millefolium, it grows wild here...but never dreamed that this was an achillea too.

Lori, its in a border that only gets sun in the afternoon, seems happy there.
3pb, I discarded any flat top Achilleas ages ago, they were spreading uncontrollably.

I struggle to grow Achileas here. I check they have space to grow every day. This looks quite different.

Grew it for years, then it disappeared like many other plants in our garden....usually bomb proof!

I was given it as a tiny twig, a week or two ago, just look at those side shoots developing. I really should pinch out the top, but I'd lose those flowers, so white.

I agree it is a pretty little plant....
