Achillea millefolium 'Terra Cotta'
Terra Cotta Yarrow
This yarrow is a hybrid with soft green foliage, and flowers that start off a bright salmon colour, fading to terra cotta going off to buff. There are multi-coloured blossoms on a single plant that bloom throughout summer. The yarrow propagate easily from rooted cuttings or division, which should be performed in the early spring or fall. Following bloom, one should dead head the plant and divide the clumps when it appears crowded.
Information by Gardensoft
The achillea combine particularly well with Penstemon. They may also be planted along with various Mediterranean-style perennials that require minimal amounts of water.
