Botanical Name

ACHILLEA millefolium 'Fireland' ('('Feuerland')')

Plant Common Name

Common Yarrow, Fireland Common Yarrow

General Description

From early through midsummer, yarrow ‘Fireland’ displays many dense, flat-topped clusters of tiny, bright red flowers that fade to deep apricot with age. These are borne on slender, sturdy stems which rise from vigorous clumps of bright green, ferny foliage. The vibrant blooms are irresistible to butterflies, and also make excellent cut flowers.

This carefree, drought-tolerant perennial is easily grown in full to part sun and average, well-drained soil. If desired, plants may be divided every two to three years to keep them within bounds. Blooming is prolonged by regular removal of faded flower stems. Yarrow is ideal for mixed borders and casual, cottage-style garden.
