Boasting all the color of an annual plant combination plus the longevity of perennials, the Border Achillea and Geranium Mix quickly grows into a carpet of brilliance for any sunny garden spot. Rely on it for years of nonstop summer color.

This pack of 6 plants contains 4 of Achillea Little Moonshine and 2 of Geranium cinereum Jolly Jewel® Purple. Both are low-growing, spreading perennials that love sunshine and don't mind a bit of dry soil. Once established, both are drought-tolerant and very adaptable to tough environmental conditions from poor soil fertility to high heat. Most important, they look terrific together and bring butterflies and bees into the garden!

Of course, you can grow this pair in containers instead of the garden if you'd rather. Either way, they both reach about 10 to 12 inches high and wide, blooming like crazy from late spring right through summer. Little Moonshine offers ferny foliage of dark green with a fabulous fragrance, while Jolly Jewel® Purple sports gray-green, felty leaves, which probably inspired the common name of Ashy Cranesbill for this species.

And the flowers --! You will love the bright, sulphur-yellow blooms of Little Moonshine, flat-topped and SO long-lasting. The brilliance of Jolly Jewel® Purple is stunning, too, especially when you get up close and see that these small blooms are actually deep red at the base, shading to bright fuchsia, and sport darker veins plus a 5-pointed central star of green! Wow . . .

Little Moonshine is a selection of our native American Yarrow, so you know it's easy to grow. Jolly Jewel® Purple is a snap as well, and doesn't mind a bit of afternoon shade in warmer climates. Both are hardy in zones 4 through 8 (the Geranium actually goes through zone 3 in the north), and both are left alone by nibbling deer, rabbits, and other pests. So much color for so little effort! Do snap this combo up quickly, before it sells out! 6 pack includes 6 3½" pots
