Med. 28" - Plant 14" apart. zone 3-9 - A strong grower with vibrant pink heads that mature to rose-pink, then slowly fade to near white. Deep green ferny foliage.

General Information
Achillea hybrids flower from summer to early fall. Irresistible to butterflies. Excellent fresh cut flowers or dried. Tolerant of drought, wind and heat. Grows well in almost any soil type. Spreads to fill in, so give them room.
