The Achillea millefolium Paprika is renowned for its large clusters of bright red flowers. Each individual flower in the cluster of the Achillea Paprika also has a distinctive yellow eye. As is the case with all Yarrows, the flowers fade as they age; Paprika Yarrow fades from red to pink. Planting Achillea Paprika in afternoon shade will slow the fading a bit. Adding to Achillea Paprika good looks is the fern-like deep green foliage. Achillea Paprika is ever blooming with regular deadheading and is best used in the perennial border where it enjoys enriched soil and regular watering.
Achillea Paprika flowers from summer to early fall. Achillea Paprika is irresistible to butterflies. Achillea Paprika makes excellent fresh cut flowers or dried arrangement. Blooms of the Achillea Paprika are ruby red to salmon rose.
Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips: Yarrow is one of the easiest perennials to grow and is a good choice for beginners. All it needs is full sun and well-drained soil. It thrives in average to poor soil and is drought tolerant once established. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be tall and floppy. After the flowers have faded, cut the plant back by half. This will likely stimulate a second flush of blooms in late summer. Do not let plants go to seed. Most varieties do not come true from seed. Divide every few years to keep plants to a manageable size.
