Achillea x millefolium Colorado


SKU: 560976 Category:


Achillea always stand out in gardens because of their large, flat-topped flowerheads that look quite unlike anything else, and their finely divided fern-like leaves. It takes its name from Achilles, who in legend is reputed to have used it to heal his soldier's wounds after the siege of Troy, hence its other name 'Soldier's Wound Wart'.
'Colorado' is a fabulous variety of Achillea providing your summer displays with plate-like flowerheads, each one made up of hundreds of individual blooms in in a mixture of colours that will all complement each other effortlessly.
Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', the summer flowers are a favourite with butterflies and bees. Flowering from May to August, they're a welcome contrast to the more usual rounded or spike shaped flower heads of most perennials and they look incredibly dramatic as cut flowers, lasting well in a vase, and can even be dried.
A very easy-grow perennial that will thrive in full sun and will tolerate even poor soils however well drained soil is essential.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant out, ready for planting, and growing to a height of 70cm (2½ft).
