General Description

Yarrow 'Angelique' accents the summer garden with many flat-topped clusters of dark blood red flowers with tiny yellow centers that nicely retain their color in the summer heat. Forming a nice spreading clump of fine, ferny, silvery-green foliage the dense, jewel-toned flower clusters are born on sturdy stems and are irresistible to butterflies.

This tough, easy-care perennial performs best in full sun and moist, reasonably fertile, well-drained soil, but will tolerate dry conditions and light shade. Too rich of a soil can cause floppy, weak flower stems. Blooming may be prolonged by regular removal of faded flower stems. If necessary, divide plants every two to three years in spring or fall. Ideal for mixed borders and casual cottage-style gardens, its bright blooms also make excellent cut flowers.
