Tutti Frutti Apricot Delight Achillea -
The Achillea Yarrow is a beautifully dense, bushy and heat loving plant. It features striking clusters of flowers that are a deeply soft apricot and mature to a rich rose pink. They achieve their best color in full sun conditions. It is lightly fragranced and set against a deep green, fern-like foliage and the pink flowers are excellent for cutting.
Named for Achilles, the Trojan hero who used the plant to stop bleeding and heal his soldiers, the Achillea is native to Europe and temperate parts of West Asia. This versatile plant is easy to propagate and comes in a wide range of colors and sizes.
The Achillea Apricot Delight is the smallest of the Tutti Frutti Series of Yarrows bred to have a compact appearance and flower steadily. This perennial plant has many positive benefits aside from its stunning appearance. It blooms over a long season from early to late summer.
Yarrow requires little care being relatively drought resistant and disease resistant. Optimum growth conditions are well drained, average dry-medium soils. It tolerates shade but flowering is most prolific in full sun. Rich, moist soils will cause this Yarrow to droop and get floppy.
The Apricot delight grows up to heights of 12-16 inches and width of 20-23 inches. They can be invasive due to their fast growth rate but regular division will keep them in check. They attract butterflies and hummingbirds and are rabbit and deer resistant.
This Yarrow is a great texture accent as garden plants and can be used as a border plant or for edging. It is the perfect addition to rock, cottage and coastal gardens and is a stunning feature plant for meadows and prairies. You can also use the vibrant flowers as dried floral arrangements.
