Plant details

Yarrows come in a variety of different colours, from white and yellow to shocking pink. Their flat flower heads contrast wonderfully with their dark green, feathery foliage, and make the perfect landing pad for insects. They're particularly attractive to hoverflies.

Achillea 'Cerise Queen' is a particularly colourful yarrow, bearing cerise pink flower heads with dark margins and paler colouring towards the centre. It's perfect for growing towards the middle of an ornamental border or wildlife garden, and is also ideal for growing in gravel gardens. For best results, grow Achillea 'Cerise Queen' in full sun in well-drained soil. Divide clumps every three to five years, and never allow plants to become waterlogged.

Lovely plant, easy to grow, but the slugs love the new shoots in spring. I've had to cloche mine this year to stop them munching it to death.
