Achillea is a hardy perennial plant also known as Yarrow. The genus was named after the Greek mythological character Achilles, as according to legend, Achilles’ soldiers used Yarrow to treat their wounds. Achillea ‘The Pearl’ produces sprays of pure white flowers above finely toothed, dark green leaves. The pom-pom flowers appear from June and once faded will produce a second flush if cut back. Similar in appearance to Gypsophila, it’s spreading habit is perfect for growing in the middle of beds and borders. Pollen-rich flowers are attractive to a host of pollinators including: bees and butterflies. Achillea ‘The Pearl’ also makes a superb cut flower.

Description

Achillea are easy to grow and will do well in a sunny position in most well-drained soils, but will not tolerate waterlogged conditions. Once planted and before the plant has made too much growth add a bamboo cane to support. Water at least once a week during summer months until established, but keep watering in winter to a minimum. Once established Achillea are fairly drought tolerant. Remove spent flowers during the season to encourage more to grow. After flowering is complete, and autumn turns to winter, Achillea should be cut back to ground level preferably before the plants go completely dormant and the old flower spikes turn brown. They can be lifted and divided every three to five years, which will revitalise the original clump and give you new plants to grow elsewhere.
