Yarrow

Achillea 'Saucy Seduction' PP20,782, COPF

Deep rose flower clusters atop fern-like foliage, each flower contains a tiny white eye.

The Seduction Series of Yarrows were recently bred in the Netherlands. Plants are midsized and upright, with very uniform blooming over a long season. This selection has clusters of rich rose-pink flowers, each with a tiny white eye. Excellent for cutting. Nice in the border and for massed planting. Deadheading faded blooms should encourage more buds to form. Likely to prove hardy down to Zone 3 or colder.
