This spectacular pair of perennials will provide weeks of joyful color in your borders from mid summer to fall. Beautifully associated with the lavender-blue daisies of Aster 'Monch' (Aster x frikartii), are the broad, mustard-yellow flower heads of Fernleaf Yarrow 'Gold Plate' (Achillea filipendulina).

A classic and vibrant mix of contrasting blues and yellows for the late season perennial border! Both plants won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. Enjoy!
