 This uniquely colored selection produces large clusters of flowers in shades of pink, from light apricot to rose red, atop a clump of finely textured, green foliage.  It blooms from early to midsummer, and deadheading promotes rebloom. 

In addition to the unique flower color, one other notable characteristic of this variety is its neatly compact, full habit.  It forms a sturdy, upright clump in the landscape.  High heat, humidity, and drought are well-tolerated.

Members of the TUTTI FRUTTI™ Series are heat loving and very low-maintenance varieties of Achillea.  They are characterized by their uniform flowering, long bloom time, robust upright habit, and disease resistant foliage.  They produce an abundant amount of large, colorful flower clusters on sturdy, compact stems.

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. Most varieties do not come true from seed.
