Rich pink flowers are produced in flat-topped clusters atop strong stems in early and midsummer. They have the most intense color when they first emerge and then fade to light pink as they age, lending a unique multicolored effect to the clump. Compared to 'Apple Blossom' which is also pink, the flower color of 'Pretty Belinda' is stronger and remains pink even when faded. In addition, the ferny, green foliage forms a compact, upright clump instead of spreading like 'Apple Blossom'.

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Yarrow is one of the easiest perennials to grow and is a good choice for beginners. All it needs is full sun and well-drained soil. It thrives in average to poor soil and is drought tolerant once established. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be tall and floppy. After the flowers have faded, cut the plant back by half. This will likely stimulate a second flush of blooms in late summer. Do not let plants go to seed. Most varieties do not come true from seed. Divide every few years to keep plants to a manageable size.
