If you're worried about future summer droughts, these sturdy Achilleas won't let you down. Tough but beautiful, they thrive on light sandy soils and even tricky coastal conditions. From June to August the aromatic, ferny foliage is topped with flat, terracotta flower heads which associate equally well in modern prairie plantings alongside swaying grasses or in cottage gardens where they'll attract plenty of pollinating insects. 

Achillea Collection comprises: 

Achillea 'Terracotta': Flat orange heads which fade to biscuit yellow. Looks great with Salvia 'Caradonna'. Height: 80cm (32"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Achillea 'Strawberry Seduction' : Velvety red flowers with golden yellow centres. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12"). 

Achillea 'Salmon Beauty':  Pastel salmon heads fading to a creamy pink. Height: 70cm (28"). Spread: 45cm (18"). RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Plant out Achillea plants into any well-drained soil in full sun. Achillea plants dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting.
Once established, Yarrow is reasonably drought tolerant and requires little maintenance. In summer, stake the tall flower stems with garden canes to prevent them drooping and leave faded flower heads intact at the end of summer to enjoy an attractive autumn seed head display. When the first frosts blacken the stems, cut them down to ground level. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of yarrow in spring. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
