description for "Yarrow: Achillea filipendulina 'Moonshine'"
We recommend 'Moonshine' as one of the best garden perennials currently available. It can be used in both xeric and non-xeric perennial borders, as it is highly adaptable in its soil and water needs. The distinctive silver-gray foliage of 'Moonshine' is a fine backdrop for the lemon yellow flower clusters that keep coming all summer. Skirt the base of the plant with ground covers like Delosperma cooperi or Veronica Heavenly Blue, then mix in with other taller perennials like Penstemon strictus; the possibilities are endless!
