Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day)
Water: average to low soil moisture. Avoid moist or wet soils, which can lead to weak growth and rot.

Winterizing: No special winter requirements; dry conditions in winter are preferred.
Maintenance & pruning: Plant can be cut back after its first early summer bloom for a flush of fresh growth as with other yarrow. However, this is not strictly necessary, as this improved selection continues to bloom without the customary trim.
ReviewsWrite a reviewVery disappointed to receive dead plantsJodie Oliver | Jul 13, 2020Ordered six of these four Achillea "Firefly Diamond plants. to replace the two recently eaten by a gopher! I purchased gopher baskets and couldn't wait to receive these! As of now, I don't even recall how many of the Achilleas I received, nor does it matter at this point - all were dead-like. The plants arrived, package two to a narrow box. I was so excited to receive them! And then I opened them! So, so disappointing! Then embarrassed that I had been foolish enough to purchase plants on-line!! ALL were so dead, that the fern-like leaves were crunchy! I don't know if they will survive. (in addition, I also purchased six May Night salvias - five were received in horrible, nearly dead condition; purchased two Limelight hydrangea; two At Last roses - which were in much better shape!! And actually resembled a garden plant!. Still, I unpacked all, removed the plastic wrapping, following the instructions for watering and setting plants in a cool, shady spot for a time (yesterday was day three). I am giving all of the plants an additional couple of days, then calling the company!Owner Response: Please give us a call at 877-447-4769 - We warranty our plants for a full 30 days after delivery (too many variables that are out of our control after that) But we really need to hear from you. -- Management
