Paprika Achillea is an excellent variety that produces stunning 2- to 3-inch, dusty-red flower clusters with contrasting yellow centers and fern-like aromatic foliage. Yarrow thrives in sunny locations with well-drained soils. It tolerates drought once established and the salty conditions found in coastal gardens. After blooms are spent, cut plant back to the ground. In order to maintain its vigor, plants should be divided every 3-5 years. The tiny flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies, while the seeds of yarrow appeal to many songbirds. Deer and rabbits tend to leave it alone.

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

Comment: 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!"

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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!
