Description
Summer Berries brings a mass of multicolored blooms to your mid to late summer garden.

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.

    Comments about American Meadows Yarrow Summer Berries:

    Well, I only got pink blooms. Maybe I was confused by the description, but I thought there were going to be different colors on the same plant or several different colored plants in one pot. With that said, the pink blooms made an attractive addition to my rock garden. I had never grown Yarrow before and I like how each bloom gradually fades to white, giving the grouping an ombre effect. Also it bloomed all summer long which is always a plus. I like the delicate fern-like foliage as well, which as of January 21 is still in a nice green clump.
