Paprika Yarrow
Achillea millefolium 'Paprika'


Grows 1' - 3' high and 1’ - 3' spread
Yarrow prefers well-drained soil and full sun and it is often found naturalizing in fields and along roadsides.  It is a fantastic wildlife plant that attracts butterflies and other pollinators.  Makes excellent cut or dried arrangements and is very easy to divide.  'Paprika' Yarrow has brick-red flowers that should be dead-headed after blooming to encourage additional flowers.  Works well as a flowering ground cover in meadows, prairies, and naturalized areas.

Large clumps should be divided as necessary to maintain healthy and vigorous growth and performance and reduce disease.  Bloom season is from mid to late summer.
