Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

ACHILLEA 'Mary Ann'

Plant Common Name

Hybrid Yarrow, Mary Ann Yarrow

General Description

This lovely yarrow displays many flat-topped clusters of pale lemon-yellow flowers from late spring to midsummer. The blooms rise on slender, compact stems above spreading clumps of finely divided, fernlike, silvery foliage, and are attractive to butterflies.

‘Mary Ann’ grows easily in full sun and well-drained soil of average fertility. Faded flower stems may be cut to the ground after blooming to maintain a neat appearance. Yarrow is suitable for mixed borders and cottage-style gardens, and its blooms make excellent cut flowers. Use it as a companion to daylilies for a beautiful contrast in foliage and flowering.
