Plant Information

Paprika is a big favorite because, like the name suggests, its spicy hot. The red flowers are really red, and the contrasting bright yellow centers make it all sizzle in the sun.

About the Yarrows. The Achillea tribe are plants of dry, gritty areas, and do not like soil that is too moist or rich. Give yours plenty of drainage.

The fore-runners of these beautiful hybrids have one of the richest histories in the plant world. Long thought of as a magical plant, Yarrows history goes back to Roman times, when it was thought useful in healing warrior wounds. The name Achillea is from Achilles, and the fateful wound of his heel. But it doesn't stop there. Witchcraft and all sorts of magical potions are associated with this plant.

The basic wildflower, Achillea millefolium, has a grayish-white bloom with deep green ferny foliage.

Best Uses

  • Butterfly garden

Comments about American Meadows Yarrow Paprika:

I have a large butterfly garden and used these plants for spots of color. Butterflies were attracted to them but had a little problem with a webby pest, not sure what it was. Blasted it with the hose several days, and it seemed to take care of the problem.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
