We Love Achillea ‘Little Moonshine’

Sometimes you simply cannot make a garden any larger, or perhaps you have room for only a few new containers this year. Well, those who garden in the sun are in luck, because Blooms of Breshingham has introduced a smaller version of the popular Achillea ‘Moonshine’. It’s ‘Little Moonshine’, a petite bundle of sunny yellow. We are excited to give this plant a try in the gardens this year. We love yarrow, but at times it can flop and look unkempt. The smaller size of this plant promises to hold its tidy shape without sacrificing season-long blooms.

Achillea Little Moonshine

Common name: Yarrow
Botanical name:Achillea ‘Little Moonshine’

Bloom time: May–September
Foliage: Gray-green
Height: 9–12 inches

Yarrows do best when planted in full sun, in well-draining soil. Once the plant blooms, cut back the flowers to encourage continuous blooms throughout the season. This plant is deer resistant and it attracts butterflies.
