Achillea ptarmica 'Peter Cottontail'
For anyone unfamiliar with Achillea ptarmica, this species is rather different from most of the commonly sold varieties. 'Peter Cottontail' has large, ivory white flowers that are produced over a low, mounding habit of green foliage. Compared to other achillea the flowers are more well-spaced. The individual flowers are larger and the plant has greater poise. Although this perennial is named after one, 'Peter Cottontail', tends to be rabbit, and deer resistant.
This is one of the easiest perennials to grow and therefore a good choice for beginners. All it needs is full sun and well-drained soil. The flowers, like all achillea, are magnets for pollinators. This is an uncommon plant that will make an excellent foil to some flashier perennials in any garden, combining well with grasses and many other perennials
