Not every plant can be a super star.
- Average size is 2′ x 2′
- Survives in zones 4-8
- Prefers full sun
- Deer resistant (no issue ever for me)
- Drought and heat tolerant
- Has no real soil preference and has worked in clay for me
- Flowers are a deep yellow and are anywhere from 3″ to 5″ in diameter
- Like most yarrows (if not all?) the foliage is fern-like and a deep green in color
- The foliage is alleged to be fragrant but me and my deviated septum beg to differ
One quick note: Years ago, this was the first flower I cut and attempted to “dry” in my basement and I still remember the look on my wife’s face when she saw it hanging from the rafters. It screamed “Who is this guy I married?” Classic.

One last item before I leave you.
For the first time ever, I have found a number of these popping up in different areas in the garden yet I’ve read that it doesn’t re-seed and isn’t true to the parent. Hmmmm … very interesting. Anyone else having any experience with this? Please share.
“Dream on” and have a great weekend!
