Yarrow 'Cerise Queen' (Achillea millefolium 'Cerise Queen') Herb in 1 Litre Pot

Native to Europe and Britain, Achillea millefolium is a hardy perennial that will flourish in any soil condition, but prefers light well-drained soil and a sunny position. This variety is longer flowering than some varieties from June to September and it is drought-tolerant. Try it in a sunny spot towards the back of an herbaceous border, or among grasses, do stake it, as it tends to flop due to the weight of the flower head if it gets wet. It makes an excellent cut flower too.

 Being a native plant it is attractive to bees and butterflies great for a naturalistic planting scheme. Reaching heights of 60cm, Yarrow flowers from June to September, this particular variety as the name suggests produces beautiful tightly packed umbels of  cerise plate-like flowers held high on tall stems, and has ferny foliage beneath which is grey-green in colour which has a distinctive smell. 

Herb Usage

A traditional anti-inflammatory herb, the leaves and flowering stems are used to treat wounds and nosebleeds, indeed its generic name honors Achilles whose soldiers are said to have used the herb in treating their wounds.

    Lovely plants for insects to land on

    A nice healthy sizeable plant, well worth the money. Well packed and arrived quickly after ordering. Planting at back of border where sun hits it most of the day as it is pretty drought tolerant. Flowers almost all summer into autumn and what a beautiful colour. It changes from its original Cerise colour to a pretty paler pink so you could say it is almost two tone having both colours on the plant at the same time. What an attractive plant.
