A light pink color. A little taller than I thought here in NE Ohio, at 3 ft! But pretty anyway. Staking may be required.

Medium 2' - Plant 18" apart. Zone 3-9 New buds are silver, opening to wine pink, with time mellowing to a pleasing pale blush. Nice color range adds depth from a distance.

Achillea hybrids flower from summer to early fall and are tolerant of drought, wind and heat. Grows well in almost any soil type. Spreads to fill in, so give them room.
