Achillea millefolium Apple Blossom (syn. Apfelblute)

Yarrow Apple Blossom

An easy-to-grow yarrow, ideal for a cool cottage garden planting,, Achillea millefolium Apple Blossom is a small to medium-sized, fast-growing, mildly spreading, rhizomatous perennial, which flowers from all summer if dead-headed. The feathery, very finely divided leaves are grey-green. In summer, the leafy stems carry flat heads of tiny flowers, rose-pink fading to shell-pink, making a lovely contrast to spire-like flowers, and are very good in a cool pink, white and blue border. The flowers of yarrow Apple Blossom are very attractive to pollinators. The juice of the yarrow was supposedly used by Achilles to heal the wounds of his soldiers – hence the genus name.
