Description / Little Moonshine Yarrow

The smallest member of the Achillea family is also the cutest, as babies usually are! Little Moonshine Yarrow is a super-compact, early-blooming sport of the popular full-sized variety 'Moonshine.' Now you can grow this native American perennial even if you don't have a foot of garden soil!

Compact enough for patio pots, Little Moonshine Yarrow has not sacrificed one whit of bloom strength or fragrance to achieve its smaller size. In fact, it tends to begin flowering even earlier than most other Yarrows, continuing all summer (cut or deadhead the blooms promptly for fastest rebloom) and even going into fall!

And Little Moonshine Yarrow comes by its vigor and beauty honestly. The fragrant gray-green leaves and abundant pale yellow flowerheads, irresistible to butterflies and bees, resemble those of big Moonshine. This plant was bred by a Dutch plantsman and introduced in England, where it created a sensation. We are so glad it has made its way across the pond!

Expect this sun-loving, drought-resistant perennial to reach just 9 to 12 inches high and 10 to 12 inches wide, with masses of creamy primrose flowers above sagebrush-scented foliage. It never needs support to keep the big flowerheads from flopping, and will bloom even in poor soil or dry conditions. Talk about native vigor!

Give Little Moonshine Yarrow plenty of water and food the first season, and then let it go. You will find it marvelously self-sufficient. Zones 4-8.
