Achillea

Yarrow

Legend has it that Achilles used this plant to heal his soldiers’ wounds after battle. As a folk remedy, its leaves are prescribed to soothe abrasions and toothache. We find this sturdy, dependable plant the perfect remedy for many design situations. The broad, flat flower heads enhance horizontal elements, their colors blending with other perennials. Spicy smelling, fernlike foliage and strong straight stems add to overall attractiveness. Spreading and drought tolerant, Yarrow seems to thrive on neglect, can handle ocean spray and will bloom again in the fall if cut back in midsummer.

Just hearing this new, warm-colored Achillea’s name conjures a sweet and satisfying image. Finely dissected, grayish green foliage offsets paprika-toned buds and thick slices of small, individual old-gold florets. Position ‘Marmalade’ next to Kniphofia ‘Patricia Marrow’ and Nepeta ‘Joanna Reed’ so you can indulge in its rich autumnal shades.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
