ACHILLEA PTARMICA THE PEARL
If you are looking for something to smother the weeds, this very vigorous variety of Achillea wil provide the solution. It is great for a bit of scrubland that you want filling as it is cursed by many as one of those plants that you cannot get rid off once it has established however, it is very pretty indeed. If you are able and content enough to pull them out when they grow in place you do not want them, then I would not exclude them from your shopping list.
En mass they look like hundreds of miniature double chrysanthemum heads and have a beautiful sheen to them. Perfect for te case they make a great cut flower and are great in the cottage garden border where chaos traditionally rules.
Best grown in partial shade, Achillea ptarmica the Pearl will fill a dull area with bright white, summer long. If you keep cutting back the flower heads (dead-heading) you will be rewarded with a repeat flush in Autumn. Prefers moist but well drained soil. Very happy in an exposed position and grown to a mature high and spread of 100cm x 100cm (39 x 39 inches). I really do recommend you buy only one pot for a small garden.
