|I would like to purchase an Achillea to put in an area in my front yard which will have full sun all spring & summer. Will this plant do well in my area? What I am looking for is a flowering perennial plant that will do well in my area.|
|Achillea, or yarrow, is a hardy and carefree perennial, perfect for a site in full sunshine. The plants can grow to 3' tall. Other suggestions include Artemisia, Gaillardia, Liatris, Oenothera (evening primrose), Salvia, and Melampodium leucanthum (blackfoot daisy).|
Amend the soil with organic matter prior to planting, to help the soil drain well yet hold moisture for the roots of your new plants.
