Achillea tomentosa, commonly known as woolly yarrow, is an evergreen, mat-forming perennial that typically grows to 20 cm tall spreading to 30-45 cm wide or more.
‘Aurea’ has deeper yellow flowers than the species.Fern-like foliage, fragrance and horizontally-spreading habit. It is native to Europe and western Asia. Numerous small, linear-lanceolate, deeply-dissected, ferny, gray-green leaves are woolly on both sides, twice pinnately divided and consist of small slender segments.
Leaves are aromatic (spicy) when bruised. Flower heads appear in dense flat-topped clusters. Flowers bloom from June to August.
Best grown in lean, dry to medium, well-drained sandy loams in full sun. Does well in average garden soils and tolerates poor soils as long as drainage is good. Avoid heavy clays and moist, rich, fertile soils. Plants are generally intolerant of hot and humid summers.
