Beautiful plant. Wanted to grow it side by side with "Strawberry Seduction" and it is about 6-8 inches shorter than the strawberry cultivar. Something to keep in mind if you are designing very careful "levels" of flowers in your beds.
Awesome hot pink color, tolerant of moist conditions, blooms and blooms. Love this yarrow.

Excellent yarrow, very tough. Mine grow in a southwest facing bed against the foundation of my house. Despite it being hot and very dry because of an overhang, they still grow nicely and flower. They benefit from a bit of extra watering in spring, to give them a good start.
