Achillea filipendula 'Gold Plate'

Plant details

Yarrows come in a variety of different colours, from white and yellow to shocking pink. Their flat flower heads contrast wonderfully with their dark green, feathery foliage, and make the perfect landing pad for insects. They're particularly attractive to hoverflies.

Achillea 'Gold Plate' has mid-green to grey-green leaves with large, bright golden yellow flowers. It's perfect for growing towards the middle of an ornamental border or wildlife garden, and is also ideal for growing in gravel gardens. For best results, grow Achillea 'Gold Plate' in full sun in well-drained soil. Divide clumps every three to five years, and never allow plants to become waterlogged.
