Achillea ptarmica 'The Pearl'

Pearl Sneezewort, Sneezewort

One of the hardiest, least-demanding perennials for hot and dry locations, Achillea's flattish flower clusters bloom generously in many colors and provide excellent cut and dried flowers. Fire retardant and somewhat drought-tolerant once established they need full sun, but tolerate most soils with good drainage. Their gray-green leaves are aromatic. Do not over-water or over-fertilize, as plants grow weak stems that make poor dried flowers. Deadhead to encourage further bloom. Start from seed or division.
Achillea ptarmica, Pearl Sneezewort, Sneezewort
Its many white double blooms make excellent cut flowers. Spreads rapidly, and in good soils, sometimes too far. Dry leaves and roots have been used as a snuff, giving it its common name.
