Achilleas are short-lived perennials with flat, plate-like umbels which stand tall above fern-like foliage. They thrive best in a hot, sunny border, where they will quickly fill gaps, and their blooms are attractive to hoverflies. They make an excellent cut flower.

Achillea ‘Apfelblute’ has delightful pink blooms, that fade gradually as the season progresses. Grow in an informal, mixed herbaceous border, in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Stake plants before flowering. Deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering and either cut back blooms in autumn or leave the seedbeds in situ for the birds. Lift and divide congested clumps every three years, in autumn or spring.
