" 'Moonshine' (A. clypeolata x A. 'Taygetea') is an upright, clump-forming, compact hybrid yarrow which is noted for its deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, silvery to gray-green foliage and its tiny, long-lasting, bright lemon-yellow flowers which appear in dense, flattened, compound corymbs (to 2-3" across) throughout the summer on stiff, erect stems typically rising 1-2' tall. This plant resembles A. 'Coronation Gold' except it is much smaller and the flowers are a lighter yellow. " Missouri Botanical Garden

1-2' tall x 0.75-1' wide clumps, flowers for very long time from June to September. RHS Award of Garden Merit (Royal Horticultura Society, UK).

Full sun, half sun is the best, average soils, drained soil, dry soil (including dry clay). Average moisture, medium-dry to dry soil. Avoid waterlogged and poorly drained soils. Tolerates leaner or poor soil, too fertile soils can cause shorter life or even flopping.

Hardy in zone 3 to 8 (doesn't perform the best in hot southern climate though).

Deer and rabbit resistant. Attracts butterflies.

Best in sunny flower beds, xeriscape, naturalistic design, in hot, baked or dry soil, bigger containers, traffic islands, urban landscaping, cottage gardens or butterfly gardens.

Goes well with many sun loving perennials like Agastache, Calamintha, Echinacea, Paeonia, Perovskia, Nepeta, and many grasses.

Pot size : square 3.5" x 4" deep perennial pot
