This cute and compact perennial has been a garden favorite since its introduction in the 1950’s. Moonshine yarrow features lemon yellow panicles of long-lasting flowers that rise above its ferny grey green leaves from late spring through fall. The blooming stalks work well in cut arrangements whether used fresh or dried, but if left on the plant they’ll attract the attention of butterflies while flowering.
Pests and diseases are not a problem for moonshine yarrow; even deer and bunnies find the aromatic foliage distasteful. It is also remarkably tolerant of full sun, a variety of soils, and extreme heat or cold. This little charmer is a plant that asks for very little maintenance, and gives back lots of joy.
