Achillea 'Novaachdus' has small, soft yellow flowers tightly clustered together in large, flat-topped flowerheads from early until late summer. The stems grow to 10 to 13 inches tall with lacy, fernlike foliage. 'Novaachdus’ may be sold commercially under the name MOON DUST. It likes full sun and dry conditions and tolerates drought well. It is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds while resistant to deer and rabbits. This is a favorite as a cut flower and is also excellent as a dried flower. The genus name Achillea is in reference to Achilles, hero of the Trojan Wars in Greek mythology, who used the plant medicinally to stop bleeding and heal the wounds of his soldiers.
