One of the smallest of the achilleas, this grows to only 60cm so is perfect for the front of the border. The flowers come in flattened clusters from 5 - 10cm across and are a pale creamy-yellow. They are produced in mid and late summer and are held on gently branching stems above the greyish-green leaves. Achilleas are generally happier in hot, dry spots, but this variety copes better than the others with more moisture. Plant it with grasses for a wild looking, prairie border, or fit it in with other summer flowering perennials for a long season of colour.Garden care: Stake using bamboo canes or brushwood before the flowers appear. Cut down to the ground in late winter, but resist the urge to do this earlier, as the seed heads look lovely in the winter light.Lift and divide large clumps in late autumn or early spring.
