With a look that is reminiscent of Baby's Breath, this gorgeous white border plant makes an excellent choice for mixed borders, seasonal beds and cutting gardens. Peter Cottontail bears bright white, double blooms atop strong, straight stems. The overall appearance is that of tiny cotton balls (or tails) that cover tidy, mounded plants from early summer to the early part of fall. Peter Cottontail makes an outstanding border plant, but also looks fantastic in containers or large perennialized areas. The fragrant flowers attract butterflies, but not deer or rabbits. Fast growing and easy to maintain. Achillea ptarmica 'Peter Cottontail' PPAF
