Achillea x huteri is probably descended from Achillea atrata, a perennial species native to the Alps.
This is a rock garden variety of yarrow that forms a small, dense cushion of aromatic grey-green leaves with finely-chiselled tips. It is slow growing, and its early summer flowering is dazzling but without frills! Pure white, and that's all.
In the garden we like to grow this yarrow along the edge of a sunny border, in a rock garden (trough, wall or on paving) and, given its small size, why not among your collection of Alpine plants with Geranium cinereum 'Lawrence Flatman'
Grow in ordinary, light, well-drained soil. Sun or slight shade.
