Achillea millefolium 'Paprika'


Photo of Achillea millefolium 'Paprika'


'Paprika' is a stunning and vigorous growing achillea with red flowers in shades of ruby and salmon-rose blooming all summer long. It has fern-like foliage and the flowers are large and plate-like. This easy-to-grow yarrow is irresistible to butterflies and drought tolerant once established. An excellent cut or dried flower.

Care instructions

Achilleas tolerates most soils but does best in a sunny well-drained site. Cut down to the ground in late winter, but resist the urge to do this earlier, as the seed heads look lovely in the winter light. Pull out seedlings as they appear, as they rarely match the host plant. Lift and divide large clumps in late autumn or early spring.
