General Description

This subspecies of Achillea sibirica, a slender hardy perennial native to the Northern Hemisphere, makes an upright stem with distinctive lance-shaped leaves that have saw-tooted edges. The flowers have stubby white or pink petals and a prominent yellow center. They grow in a loose cluster at the top of the stem. Flowering runs through summer and into early fall.
