Product Description

Drought & Heat Tolerant - Butterflies - Bees

Achillea millefolium 'Colorado mix' yarrow is full of lovely apricot, cream, pink, red, and shades of yellow to beige that blend well and are very versatile in many styles. Very nice mix of colors for drift planting. Lots of large flat flower heads made up of clusters of mini daisy flowers are excellent landing pads attracting butterflies and beneficial insects. Achillea has feathery foliage that adds a light touch to the garden and is a very good low water selection for a sunny location that can thrive in poor soil with very little care. Some deadheading will keep it blooming over a longer period so bring in the fresh cut flowers. Excellent as an everlasting holding it's shape and color well. Can be grown xerically once established but some summer water will improve appearance and flowering. As a perennial it will return year after year with even more blooms but will remain evergreen in mild climates. Easily direct sown in the garden in summer to get a nice stand of good sized plants before cold weather arrives so that next year you will have fantastic blooms earlier in the season. Open Pollinated
