About Achillea Little Moonshine (Little Moonshine Yarrow)

An evergreen perennial, Achillea Little Moonshine is a dwarf version of the Achillea Moonshine. Reaching an average landscape size of 12-14″ tall by 14-16″ wide, this moderate grower stays compact in size and requires minimal attention. Green ferny leaves with silvery fuzz are accompanied in the summer by clusters of bright yellow umbel flowers. With an exceptionally long blooming season and interesting looking flowers, this variety can be used for those who like fresh cut flowers straight from their garden.

Planting and care instructions

Plant Little Moonshine Yarrow in an area that receives full sun and plant using well-draining soil. Water regularly after planting to establish a healthy root system then reduce frequency. After established, this plant can tolerate periodical dry spells but plan for watering when the top layers of the soil are dry. While regular pruning isn’t required, spent blooms can be trimmed back for a cleaned-up appearance. In the fall, cut back any dead foliage to encourage new growth for the following blooming season.

Landscape design ideas

Achillea Little Moonshine is compact in size making it an excellent choice when used as a border or to accompany a bed of other small perennial plants. Can be used as a deer deterrent and drought-tolerant landscape designs.
