Achillea filipendula 'Gold Plate'

Plant details

Achilleas are traditional border flowers valued for their feathery foliage and striking flat, circular heads of flowers throughout the main summer season. They team well with other perennial flowers and are a vital ingredient of a traditional herbaceous border. They are also at home in island beds, cottage gardens and other perennial planting schemes. The cultivar 'Gold Plate' has mid-green to grey-green leaves with bright golden yellow flower-heads that are 15cm (6in) across.
