Achillea Coronatin Gold

A showy middle-of-the-border perennial. Its large heads of golden yellow flowers are fine for cutting. The long blooming period, June to August, is a blessing. Foliage is gray and lacy, quite attractive in its own right. "Coronation Gold" makes one of the best dried flowers. Try it in the garden and in a vase with Platycodon.
These valuable garden plants from the north temperate zone are widely grown for the masses of flowers they bear throughout much of the summer. Their flattened flower heads introduce a fresh shape into the perennial border. Yarrows thrive in full sun and well-drained soil, and are drought tolerant.
