Achillea 'Fanal'

Plant details

Achilleas are traditional border flowers valued for their feathery foliage and striking flat, circular heads of flowers throughout the main summer season. They team well with other perennial flowers and are a vital ingredient in traditional herbaceous borders. They're also at home in island beds, cottage gardens and other perennial planting schemes.

The Achillea millefolium 'Fanal' bears bright bright orange-red flowers with yellow eyes. It's ideal for growing at the back of a mixed herbaceous border, where the flat, colourful flowerheads will attract a huge range of pollinators. For best results grow in free-draining soil in full sun. Achillea millefolium 'Fanal' makes a fantastic cut flower.
