Moonshine yarrow is a tough, dependable and beautiful perennial flower.
In mid summer, flat-topped clusters of lemon yellow flowers rise above the feathery, grey-green leaves. Besides being very easy to care for, it is a great plant to use in perennial borders because of its adaptibility to varied soil and water conditions.
It can tolerate low water conditions quite well.
Moonshine yarrow performs beautifully at the Xeriscape Garden and throughout Colorado Springs. One of the most reliable, easy-care perennial flowers on the market.
Moonshine yarrow tends to bloom twice during the growing season when irrigated regularly, but only once in very low water areas.
If irrigated, remove the spent flower clusters as they fade to promote the second set of blooms. If it doesn't receive any supplemental water, leave the seed heads on the plant for winter interest and cut back the entire plant in early spring.
