As the name tells you, this one is not brick red, or orange, or pink--its really red. Whats more, it has quite a compact habit, rarely growing over 20 inches tall.

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 Strawberry Seduction:

    I live on the side of a mountain which makes for horrible soil. I amend it but I think some plants still struggle. I will keep at it and hope that next season they will bloom better. In general, they are beautiful and different. I have them mixed in with yellow yarrow and red hot pokers.

      Comments about American Meadows Yarrow Strawberry Seduction:

      I am trying to make my extensive gardens more self-sustaining, and work free. Yarrow is always dependable. (Well, the white ones grow wild, i.e., they are basically a weed.) But they are pretty and colorful, and do not appear to attract any bugs, pests, or diseases. Just weed them back once a year, and cut them back before the beginning of new year growth, and voila! Color when you need it, green fill in where you need it.

        Used as a border plant, but it's too tall (My mistake). Will move against a rock wall in spring where it will be perfect. Fast grower, with abundant flowers and long lasting color.

          Purchased several items from this list but the Yarrow and red lupine were a disgrace. Both came looking like death. Never grew.

                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).
