Attachments (4). 1 post by 1 author.
This plant is a hybrid one. Generally considered to be a cross between A. filipendulina and A. clypeolata. Foliage resembles that of the A. filipendulina (fern-leaf yarrow) parent, but plants are more compact.
‘Coronation Gold’ is an upright, clump-forming hybrid yarrow which is noted for its deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, silvery to gray-green foliage and its tiny, long-lasting, bright mustard-yellow flowers which appear in dense, flattened, plate-like, compound corymbs. Foliage has a strong, somewhat spicy aroma which persists when used in dried arrangements.
