Achillea Hoffnung ~ Hoffnung Yarrow
The flat fuzzy divided gray leaves are beautiful in their own right. The pastel creamy yellow flowers hold for a long time on the plants or in a vase and can easily be dried. The fragrant foliage is about 1' tall and gradually expands in width over the years. The flowers grow on stalks up to 18" tall. A summer repeat bloom can be encouraged by deadheading the fading flowers. I prune out the older stalks each winter to encourage Achillea Hoffnung to produce new growth from the base. Achillea Hoffnung is hardy to zone 4. Achillea Great Expectations is the same as this plant.
