This one is a really unusual yarrow variety and simply enchanting.
True to her name, you’ll find the whole range of pastel shades, all the way from light blush to hot pink. They don't just look fantastic in flower beds and pots, but they're also beautiful in bouquets (even dried!), radiating that special kind of "wildflower charm".
These resilient (companion) perennials add a touch of magic to any garden and provide a valuable food source for insects, particularly butterflies.
These tough plants have a long flowering period.
Height: 70cm (28")
Where: Full sun, partial shade
When: January to March inside or April to June outside. Cover with 0.5cm of earth. It's best to sow them in a pot – they take a while to develop, and you don’t want them to be ‘overrun’ by neighboring plants. Don’t let them get too damp. Move them into their ‘forever home’ when they’re tall enough. Avoid frosts early on.
Spacing: 40cm (16")
Harvesting/Flowering: June to September
A paradise for insects
