Coronation Gold yarrow is a tough perennial flower grown for its bold, upright flower clusters.
It grows in clumps of finely divided leaves with strong leafy, green stems. It tolerates hot, dry neglected sites well. Bigger than moonshine yarrow, it is a good choice where a tall, upright flower is desired. Great for full sun locations.
'Coronation Gold' may spread by seed in the landscape. Unwanted seedlings may need to be pulled.
Coronation Gold yarrow has been a good performer both at the Xeriscape Garden and throughout Colorado Springs. Its deep yellow flowers and tall height make it a nice addition to landscapes. Too much shade or water can cause it to flop.
Leave the brown flower clusters on the plant for winter interest and cut them back in spring. Divide regularly to maintain vigor.
