Achillea ageratum ‘Moonwalker’

Description

Bright yellow flowers over fern-like gray-green foliage make this plant a garden staple. A good pollinator attractant, it adds a different texture and a little more height to a base of ground covers.

Though it prefers deeper media, 6″ and above, and a little more nutrition, this plant can be used successfully as an accent on green roofs.
