ACHILLEA filipendulina 'Gold Plate'
Fernleaf Yarrow, Gold Plant Fernleaf Yarrow
Fernleaf yarrow is a tall, bold perennial originating from Europe and Asia which is valued for its lovely foliage and dense, flat-topped clusters of golden-yellow flowers in summer. Those of ‘Gold Plate’ are unusually flat and broad. They are borne from late spring to early summer on tall, leafy stems which rise from vigorous clumps of fragrant, fernlike, gray-green foliage. The flowers may last as long as four weeks, and are attractive to butterflies.
As with most yarrows, 'Gold Plate' is tolerant of heat, limited drought and poor sandy soil. Still, it grows and flowers best in full sun and average soil with good drainage and regular moisture. It is not attractive to deer and its basal foliage will remain semi-evergreen in mild climates. The removal of spent flowers may help to extend bloom time. Divide in spring or fall every few years to keep clumps manageable. This is a wonderful perennial for sunny gardens, especially those for cut flowers and butterflies.
