Achillea millefolium ‘Cassis’


Yarrow

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.010.360


Yarrow is an easy-to-grow perennial, an excellent choice for planting in hot, dry sunny locations. This selection produces showy clusters of cherry-red flowers over a bushy mound of ferny green leaves. Excellent for fresh cutting, the flowers may also be dried or the ripe seedheads used in arrangements. Deadheading may encourage repeat blooming. Inclined to spread, so site this carefully or plan to reduce the clumps in size each spring. Easily divided in fall or early spring. Trim back hard after the first flush of bloom to maintain a compact habit. Heat tolerant.
