  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained
  • Rate of Growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

  • Garden care: Achilleas do not like wet soil, especially in winter. Stake if necessary 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. Pull out seedlings as they appear, as they rarely match the parent plant. Lift and divide large clumps in late autumn or early spring.
