My yarrow/Achillea millefolium 'Summer Berries'


I love Acillea millefolium... i love the aromatic finely divided feathery-looking leaves... and i sooo love the simple tiny flowers.... though tiny they are abundant and tightly-packed into a showy flower head.

My Achillea millefolium 'Summer Berries' has bloomed... although the inflorescense is not as abundant as shown by google ... it is still as pretty..... i have tried growing Achillea several times.... have failed in the past... there are about 2 or 3 occasions when my Achillea did bloom before dying out on me....






.... but i m now very worried that this Achillea millefollium of mine may also be leaving me.... for some leaves are browning away... the leaves at the base..... they do not look fine.... could it because i have been over-watering her.... i know that Achillea does not like 'wet feet' and prefers to be on the dry side.... but during very hot days she wilts.... so i water.... though the soil was still rather damp.... now it does not look healthy and robust.... and i am sooo worried.... i will stop watering for a few days and see how it goes....
