Plant Features

The Paprika Achillea is a robust perennial plant that features charming 2-3 inch, dusty-red flower heads that bloom from June-September. It has a mature height and spread of 2-feet by 2-feet and is a versatile addition for your garden because it attracts pollinators and wild birds, who use its feathery, fern-like scented foliage for their nests. You can over winter this Yarrow in Zones 3-9. Just hold off on removing old growth until spring, and plan to divide your plant every 3-5 years to maintain its vigor.

How to grow Paprika Yarrow, so that it thrives? Here are three growing tips for you. First, fertilize your Yarrow plant once when transplanting, and then again one time every spring thereafter. Second, water your Paprika Achillea well for the first month after transplanting, and then adjust your schedule to only water when the plant begins to droop. Third, plant your Achillea in a spot where it can soak up six or more hours of sunlight each day.

Common Names for Achillea include: Yarrow, Old Man’s Pepper, Devil’s Nettle, Sanguinary, Milfoil, Soldier’s Woundwort, Thousand Seal

The Paprika Achillea is a great companion plant for: Dahlia, Eryngium, Hemerocallis, Ornamental Grasses, Phlox, Phygelius, Rudbeckia, Saliva.

Healthy plant received

Although it's late in the season this plant arrived with buds on it. I expect to see the full bloom soon. Very pleased

From anonymous | October 15, 2021

Beautiful ! was the first mail order I used for shipment of flowers. I was so excited to receive my flowers. They were all packaged like little flower presents to myself to put in my newly created perennial garden. They weren’t just a cutting or cut down to the soil but an actual live plant. I am so glad I ordered from

Paprika yarrow

I was impressed with the quality of all the products so far. Packaged with great care! The plants were all still green when I opened them. 2 weeks in the ground and my yarrow has already grown a few inches and started to flower! Highly recommended and I have recommended growjoy to several friends. Thank you for your amazing plants!

Healthy plants

Plants are so well packed and healthy. I have planted them late in the season so won't be able to comment on flower color. My deer took a liking to these particular yarrow vs. other types. I had to cover with wire mesh and they have recovered from the nibbling. I will be buying more plants from here.

Plant is still alive

I have not planted it as yet because of the extreme heat in our area.

Growing things.

This plant is not meant for just beauty like a rose or hibiscus it's meant for the environment and pollinators, and it's doing just that. I have pollinators all over my garden. I also have over 100 tomato and other veggies in my garden-so I really need the pollinators.

Love the yarrow!

I bought the yarrow several years ago from GrowJoy and it's one of the easiest plants to grow. This season I decided to add several more. It's been a week and a half and they're already growing. They have fern like leaves and little flowers the color of paprika. I highly recommend this plant. Easy, pretty and low maintenance.

Feathery Beauty

These Paprika Achillea  arrived well-protected in an ingenious packaging system. Some of them already had open red flowers and the rest are in full bud. Pretty along my driveway.

Paprika Achilles

Very healthy looking plant. As soon as the ground dries out a bit., I will plant it with my Yellow Achilles. It promises to be a real showstopper!

Fast Delivery/Great Condition

I received the Paprika plant-part of my first internet plant order-and I am really pleased with how safely they were packed and the plants great condition. Thanks!

Mystery Plant

Ordered plant about 2 weeks ago but it hasn't arrived yet. The rest of my order came promptly and is growing well. Hope the missing plant doesn't arrive while I'm on vacation.

From George | March 22, 2013

Good Delivery

I was concerned about condition of plants as I was sending the plants to my sister in Montana which is a long travel distance. The Paprika Achillea plants arrived when the emails said they would and they were in good condition.
