Achillea Millefolium Walther Funcke, commonly known as Yarrow, is a compact, mat forming perennial producing long lasting flattened heads of deep orange flowers, fading into a creamy-yellow colour towards Autumn, held high above the grey-green, fern-like aromatic foliage. Flowering over a long period, they are very useful for filling in any border whilst providing an eye catching colourful display, a perfect pollinator attracting many butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects to the garden, and a favourite amongst the florist for cut flower arrangements.
