This is one of my favorite Achilleas. In my zone 6 garden it gets mostly sun, but some deep shade mid-day due to some trees. It is planted in an area of my beds with clay soil. It is one of my first Achilleas to bloom, and the blooms last for about 7 or 8 weeks. It reaches about 20 inches high. I do cut it back after the blooms fade, and sometimes it reblooms. Other than that, it is a completely care-free plant for me. Unlike many of my other Achilleas, it never flops.

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a larval host plant for the Painted Lady butterfly. It also has special value to native bees, and supports conservation biological control by attracting beneficial insects to the garden, including lacewings, hoverflies, parasitic mini-wasps, and ladybugs. These beneficial insects feed on a variety of common garden pests.
