Quick Overview:

‘ACBZ0002’, sold under the trade name of LITTLE MOONSHINE, is a compact version of Achillea ‘Moonshine’. Bred by perennial breeder Har Stemkens of Syngenta Flowers, it was introduced in 2015. It has finely cut green-gray foliage and grows 3/4 to 1 ft. tall and wide. Despite being about half as tall, its clusters of bright yellow flowers are just as large as those of ‘Moonshine’ and they may come into bloom about two weeks earlier. It will rebloom after the first flush of flowers if cut back

Description

Best grown in lean, dry to medium moisture, 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. Deadhead spent flower heads to lateral buds to promote additional bloom. Cut plants back to basal leaves after flowering to tidy the planting and to encourage new foliage growth with a possible additional fall bloom.
