Achillea millefolium Pomegranate * Pomegranate Yarrow

The soft green leaves of Achillea Pomegranate will tolerate foot traffic. Traffic is not so good for the flowers but brings up the scent of the fragrant foliage. Any of the Achillea millefolium varieties are a great lawn substitute. The blooms on Pomegranate are a brilliant red with a hint of plum fading to buff. Achillea Pomegranate will bloom in Spring and much of the summer. These yarrows are hardy in a significant drought but like a little water now and again and will look much better for it. I use the Achillea Pomegranate in a perennial border or massed to give a long lasting jolt of red, that is just a bit into the purple side of red. Achillea millefolium varieties can be used for a lawn substitute and germinate readily from seed.

Achillea Pomegranate is a nectar source for the Checkerspot Butterfly species and is a great addition to the butterfly garden.
