This variety of Yarrow has lovely lilac-pink flowers that are attractive to pollinating insects such as butterflies, hoverflies and bees. It does best in a sunny position on well-drained soil and makes a great choice for a south-facing mixed border.
Achilleas are easy to maintain, simply deadhead as required to extend the flowering season and cut back in the spring to maintain vigour. Avoid sites that become waterlogged over the winter.
Enjoy the warm colours of this plant and the insects that it attracts.
Wild bees and other pollinators are in decline. This plant is recommended specifically by the RHS as part of the RHS plants for pollinators scheme. This scheme helps gardeners to easily identify plants that encourage bees and pollinators back into the garden.
You can find more plants for pollinators on our designated page here.
Perennials are plants that live for more than 2 years, generally flowering annually and dying back during the winter. Our range has been specially selected to help you create colourful displays in your garden which will attract and benefit insects such as butterflies and bees. Choosing a variety of plants that flower at different times will help to ensure your garden looks beautiful and sustains the wildlife across the seasons.
Our plants may be delivered in an infant or dormant state but once exposed to sunlight, they will resume growing. We also recommend using a fertiliser or soil conditioner when repotting or relocating into the garden to help them establish quickly.
