Achillea ptarmica 'The Pearl'

 

Sneezewort 'The Pearl'

Quick spreading, rhizomatous perennial. Blooms early to mid-summer and often continues into the autumn. Excellent for dried flower arrangements. Deadhead regularly to encourage repeat blooming. Divide the clumps in each spring or in the autumn as this plant spreads rapidly. Trim back hard after the first flowering to encourage a compact habit.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Although not fussy, if the soil is heavy clay/on the wet side it will help to introduce some grit to improve drainage. Most Achillea prefer conditions to be on the dry side with a good amount of sun. Suggested planting locations and garden types; Wildflower meadow, Wildlife Gardens, Prairie Planting, Cottage & Informal Garden.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Easily divided by digging up and pulling off rooted plantlets. The millefolium and ptarmica varieties spread by underground stems. Plants can be raised from seed but they won't be like their parents and we have found that plants from commercial seed are all different heights and usually very floppy.
