This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, non-acidic
  • Rate of Growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This beautiful Achillea produces a profusion of rosy lilac flowers, which fade slightly with age to a lavender pink. Best in full sun in the middle rank of the border, where it will associate well with the dark spires of Salvia nemerosa and any of the Nepta family. Achilleas will attract many beneficial insects, including bees, butterflies and hoverflies to the garden.

  • Garden care: Protect from slugs. Stake using twiggy stems before the flowers appear. Cut back after first flowering to encourage a secondary flush in late summer/early autumn. Old clumps can be revived by lifting, splitting and replanting in spring.
