Does terracotta lose it's colour? I had a lovely apricot achillea which after a few years became very dull, but I do like achillea. I don't have lysimachia as it is too vigorous for my small garden, but this combo looks lovely:-)

I've just ordered the Lysimachia for my golden border :)

Terracotta is the only one I have that doesn't - it fades, but not to that 'orrible greyish hue. Good, K.! :-) Be wary of it, though.

Will do :) My mum warned me too!

Lovely Spritz. I bought Lysimachia last year to fill a gap at the back of my shed.....It's filled it alright!!It's lovely though and full of yellow flowers.Have had to pull some out, and tie it back to the fence.I found out after I bought it how !vigourous! it can be,but it's served its purpose well!!! Love the Terracota Archillea, by the way.

Vigorous is one word to describe it, but it's not the one I use when I'm trying to remove some of it....

Thanks, 'Terracotta' is one of the best Achilleas, I think. :-)

I couldn't write the word I used.... I'd have been !blacklisted!:-)) Terracotta is my fav. as well, although I do like some of the red ones.

Some of my pink ones fade to a nasty grey-ish colour. I'm thinking of removing them. :-( Why do they do that?

Glad you didn't get blacklisted!
