About the Achillea Flower Burst Red Flower
These Achillea flowers are a fantastic blend of vibrant reds, pinks, and violet shades that we are offering this year. They are a garden standby: always waiting each year to bloom and the deer really don't like them. Washington, Minnesota and Georgia University Agriculture Extension service put them on their list of deer resistant plants. And the butterflies like them, too! Yarrow blooms for a long time in early to mid summer. Plants grow about 2 ½ - 3 ft. tall with 2-4 inch umbels and soft foliage. Perennials.

Planting and Growing Achillea
Make sure your Achillea “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area in full sun or part shade. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot. Clip spent blooms for continuous blooming!
