Achillea – Desert Eve Terracotta Yarrow
Bring the warm orange and yellow shades of the desert to your summer garden with Desert Eve Terracotta Yarrow, Achillea. A long-blooming, low-maintenance Yarrow that flowers earlier than most Yarrows. Its fantastic compact growth and huge 4″ orange with yellow highlights flower clusters add to its appeal. In summer its rusty apricot orange blossoms lighten to soft pastels. Grows 20″ tall and 24″ wide.
For years a favorite with gardeners, Yarrow brings unique colors. The flowers make excellent cut and dried arrangements. Continuing the show after the flowers have stopped being produced, are its blossoms that dry right on the plant to soft colors. Its ferny foliage always looks good. It attracts butterflies and is deer and rabbit resistant. It makes a good companion for ornamental grasses, Coneflowers, and Russian Sage. Drought tolerant once established.
Plant in full sun in well-draining soil. Likes average soil, not too rich. Although drought tolerant, keep well watered when establishing plants, and when plants are setting up buds and blooming. Divide every 2-3 years.
