Achillea 'Coronation gold'


Achillea  'Coronation gold'

CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
Upright, clump-forming hybrid yarrow with deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, silvery to gray-green foliage and long-lasting, bright mustard-yellow flowers which appear in dense, flattened, plate-like, compound clusters throughout the summer on erect stems. Foliage has a strong, somewhat spicy aroma which persists when used in dried arrangements. Generally considered to be a cross between A. filipendulina and A. clypeolata. Best grown in lean, dry to medium moisture, well-drained sandy loams in full sun. Does well in average garden soils and tolerates poor soils as long as drainage is good. Avoid heavy clays and moist, rich, fertile soils. Plants are best sited in locations protected from strong winds. Deadhead spent flower heads to lateral buds to promote additional bloom. Cut plants back to basal leaves after flowering to tidy the planting and to encourage new foliage growth and a possible additional fall bloom. Divide clumps as needed to reinvigorate plantings.
