Yarrow, Achillea millefolium....possibly Red Velvet....but I am pretty sure it is the Yarrow

Really nice close ups!
Yes, Yarrow. There are quite a few varieties, and since the color I see on my monitor may not be true to what is in the garden, it will be best if you look at plenty of pictures to get a feel for the different shades of red.
'Paprika' is a very old red yarrow. I think the leaves are a bit more green than the ones in your pictures.

themoonhowl, altagardener, Diana_K,

Thank you.
Yes it is definitely Achillea millifolium.
Which one - I still yet have to ascertain.

Diana_K, the colour in my photos is true to colour - glad you liked them!
However, I notice that I have said 'red' above. The colour is actually a dark pink with yellow centres.

'Red Velvet' seems to be the one.
Thank you for your ID.

No.. 'Paprika' is correct.

Glad to help.
