Gardeners' Notes:

Positive outdoorlover On Jun 14, 2013, outdoorlover from Enid, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

I love the color of the blooms on this yarrow! My favorite. Starts magenta or very hot pink and fades to soft pink. It also blooms later here than my other yarrows (Pretty Belinda, Moonshine, Paprika). It began blooming last week (early June) It grows very big here: H 32"; W 48". It grew this big in one year from a 4" pot.

A very pretty yarrow. I love the color. The mounds of foliage are beautiful. However, it spreads very rapidly in rich soil. It grew by 10x over the course of a year. Spread is easy to control by dividing. There aren't pesky runners or deep roots that would make it difficult to eliminate. It's a great filler for a new garden.

This plant likes full sun and a welldrained soil.It is very frost hardy and spreads rapidly and it can become invasive. Grows to 1 metre tall. Great for borders and rock gardens. pokerboy.

This perennial has been reliable and I love the fern-like foliage. However, the flowers flop over unless staked. Blooms much later than my yellow or white yarrow.
