General Description

Achille sibirica is a slender hardy perennial native to the northern regions of North America and the Northern Hemisphere. The plant makes an upright stem with distinctive narrow leaves that have minutely saw-tooted edges, unlike the ferny leaves of many species in the Achillea genus. 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.

This species prefers full or partial sun on well-drained moist soil. To make a notable show, group several plants together.
