Achillea millefolium 'The Beacon' - 9cm pot
A gorgeous variety forming fine clumps of ferny foliage, and throughout summer strong upright stems bear large heads of flowers which start off vibrant red and fade to a softer pinkish-red colour. This one flowers all summer long for me and I really enjoy teaming it with other perennials like Asters and Heleniums. Flowering height 50-70cm, spread 40-50cm. Achilleas prefer full sun and good drainage, plus an average soil - too rich or shady and they will be soft and will then need staking to keep them upright. 9cm pot.
