Achillea Fillipendula - Cloth of Gold
This hardy perennial grows to around 120cm tall. The flower has brilliant yellow, flat flowerheads in summer. They dry well for winter decoration, with the filigree green foliage.
Sow indoors in autumn in prepared seed trays and protect throughout winter. Harden off and plant out in spring. Does well in seaside gardens as they are drought resistant. Cut back after flowering for a fresh supply of leaves and to encourage second flush of flowers.
