Beautiful blooms which open orange-red fading to yellow with age. Like bricks in an old wall, the colour can be various shades of terracotta, from light orange to dark, almost red.
Very attractive to pollinators, particularly hoverflies and bees.
The plants spread slowly into sizeable clumps without becoming invasive. Rightly awarded the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
It's a good choice for growing in cottage and wildlife garden schemes.
The yarrow family has been valued as garden plants for centuries and are useful for their wide range of colour and long flowering season. Most are excellent for cutting and drying and all are loved by bees and butterflies.
