Achillea millefolium

You will definitely not be disappointed when adding this long-blooming, tough and EASY California native to your garden, whether it’s cottagey, native, dry, habitat or even a container. It’s that nice, beginning in Spring you get an almost solid mass of 4” flower clusters at 2-3’ tall above the soft, ferny foliage that lasts till Fall with deadheading (see video online). An unusual and welcome color, the clusters open a soft pinky-peach and age to a sweet dusky-rose. A bee and butterfly favorite and deer and rabbit resistant. Can be divided. Drought and CLAY-ISH tolerant but bloomier with Summer water and compost-enriched soil. Cut to ground in late Fall.
