Achillea Moonshine for Macro Friday

Yarrow-Moonbeam-editLR

 

The Achillea or Yarrow ‘Moonshine’ is blooming out by the pond.   This plant is a truly drought tolerant plant.   It blooms for a long time and has wonderful structure and form.   I love the flat heads for photography and the colour of schoolbus yellow is a favourite in hot places.

I am joining Laura at Blogging from Bolivia for Macro Friday.   Have a great weekend.    Valerie

That's pretty although it almost looks like it's holding a ton of pollen...which makes me sneeze.

I depend on Achillea for colour through the summer - red, pink, yellow and nearly-white. While we drown all through spring, we are in drought - sometimes cool drought - by July.

Hi Val
Great shot. I haven't had any yarrow for some time as it always flopped over on me. I do know there are some new sturdier varieties, maybe I should try them again.
