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.

"Healthy plant received"

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

Comment: Growjoy.com 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 Growjoy.com.

Comment: 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!

Comment: 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.

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.
