(Packet of 500 Seeds)
Red Yarrow will produce clusters of ruby red to deep magenta colored flowers. Mature plants will reach a height of about 12 to 30 inches tall and will spread 18 to 24 inches wide. Red Yarrow flowers are known to attract an array of beneficial insects, such as: butterflies, bumblebees, ladybugs and hummingbirds.
Yarrow plants will form single stems that branch off into smaller stems. Each smaller stem can develop clusters of flowers, ranging anywhere from 15 to 50 blooms per cluster. The leaves look similar to a feather, growing in a spiral formation. The Achillea plant can often be seen in floral arrangements and bouquets for their thick, colorful blooms and attractive foliage.
Grown as a perennial flowering plant, Red Yarrow will develop a deep root system, later returning the following year after all danger of frost has passed. The plants will flower during the Spring and summer months of May and June, later wilting. Greatly used in borders, flower beds and by the masses in a naturalized setting.
