Achillea clavennae is a perennial Alpine plant with evergreen silver foliage has lovely little white flowers that dance in the breeze on tall stems above a base of silvery grey green foliage.

The term Alpine is given to plants that originate from high altitudes. These plants come from harsh alpine zones of often rugged mountain areas and as such they have to endure both extremely cold, windy and dry conditions. These plants often grow in infertile soil or shattered rock or scree and are used to coping with changes in temperature from searing heat to extreme cold. Typically these types of plants are low growing, so can make a great choice as a groundcover for the right spot.

Whilst Alpine plants dont mind extremes of temperature, they don’t like standing in cold, wet soil, so the main thing to consider when growing them is drainage. They can cope with some rain, and do need some watering, but they must be planted in well-drained soil and if you choose to grow them in a pot, ensure that the container has adequate holes for drainage. Most alpines like a neutral or slightly alkaline soil. Many people like to create their own bespoke Alpine gardens in old troughs and this is something that is on my list of things to do as we start to grow a few of these types of plants that have caught my eye in overseas magazines.

This little plant is drought tolerant once established and is suited ideally to alpine gardens, rock gardens, pots and troughs although it can be equally at home in the border but does need a well drained sunny position where it can perform equally as well. 

A lovely little cut flower and fabulous for buttonholes and any floral jewellery work such as wrist corsages or flower crowns due to its diminutive nature.

Plants can be easily divided in either early spring or autumn.
