Achillea millefolium Cerise Queen * Pink Yarrow

Achillea Cerise Queen has finely dissected green fragrant foliage. The clear pink blooms of Achillea Cerise Queen are most prevalent in the Spring and into the early Summer but there are usually some flowers well into the Fall. The flowers gradually fade to white and eventually paper bag brown. The clump gradually spreads by underground runners and is easily divided in the Fall. I have yet to have damage due to cold in our garden. Achillea Cerise Queen looks very bedraggled when subjected to cold weather As the weather warms I clip off all of the old foliage and the plants look great. As a native the plants can withstand a summer of drought in all but the hottest and driest parts of the garden but they look a lot better with at least a little water. Achillea is a nectar source for the Checkerspot Butterfly species and is a great addition to the butterfly garden.
