There are several Achillea that do very well in foothill rock gardens, given good drainage on a sunny slope or berm. Unfortunately, for us, they have not proven very gopher resistant, so they have gradually disappeared from our garden. If gophers are not a problem in your garden (HOW??), you might try some of the nice silver leaved species such as Achillea kellereri, Achillea serbica, or Achillea clavenae. All have silvery leaves and white/cream flowers. If you bought some of these from us many years ago, and still have them, I would like to beg for a division back. I promise to protect it in gopher wire this time.
