Achilleas are traditional border flowers valued for their feathery foliage and striking flat, flowerheads which are carried through summer. They team well with other perennial flowers and are a useful for a traditional herbaceous border. They also look well in island beds, and other perennial planting schemes.
Achillea 'Terracotta' has beautiful blooms which open orange fading to yellow with age. It's attractive to pollinators, particularly hoverflies. The plants spread slowly into sizeable clumps without becoming invasive. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
It's a good choice for growing in cottage and wildlife garden schemes. Grow Achillea 'Terracotta' in free-draining soil in sull sun to partial shade. It self-seeds readily.
