(Anthea Yarrow, Hybrid Yarrow)

Introduced by Blooms of Bressingham, this pretty, compact yarrow was discovered by Alan H. V. Bloom in 1979, who found it growing among a stand of the popular cultivar 'Moonshine'. ‘Anthea’ forms a dense clump of ferny, silvery-green foliage which is more resistant to disease than that of its parent. Dense, flattened clusters of pale primrose-yellow flowers are borne on upright stems in late spring. They create a vibrant contrast with the cool-toned leaves, and are attractive to butterflies.

'Appleblossom' displays a profusion of large, rose pink flowerheads on vigorous, compact plants throughout summer.

It forms a healthy clump of fine, ferny, green foliage which spreads more politely than that of common yarrow. Its dense, flattened flower clusters are displayed on sturdy stems...

(Silvery Yarrow)

Silvery yarrow is a low-growing, semi-evergreen perennial native to the mountainous regions of Eastern Europe. It forms a dense mat of finely dissected, gray-green leaves which are aromatic and covered with soft hairs. Many flat-topped clusters of small, white flowers appear from midsummer to early autumn. They are attractive to butterflies, and contrast nicely with the silvery foliage.

This drought-tolerant plant grows best in full sun and thrives in a range of soils, but must have good drainage....
