Apple Blossom Yarrow
Butterfliy Attracting Blooms All Summer
The Yarrow ‘Appleblossom’ , 'Apfelblute' or Achillea millefolium, is an upright soft pink flower. ‘Appleblossom’ blends well with other perennial flowers that exhibit floral colors such as white, pink, lavender, blue, and purple. This compact and vigorous yarrow has lance-shaped, mid-green leaves and strong stems.
With its fern-like foliage, this Yarrow has an aromatic smell when crushed and makes excellent cut and dried arrangements. The flower heads are 2-3” wide, with a spread of 18-24” and a height of 24”.
This Yarrow can tolerate poor soil conditions, but does best in lean, dry to medium wet, well-drained soil; avoid heavy clays and moist, rich, fertile soils. Yarrow should be planted in full sun and is tolerant to hot humid summers. Remove faded flowers to encourage more growth and divide every 3-4 years.
With its lovely pale pink flowers, ‘Appleblossom’ Yarrow is excellent for mass planting in perennial borders, wild gardens or meadow gardens. It is inclined to spread, so site this carefully. For an attraction to butterflies, deer and rabbit resistant, one can’t go wrong with this plant.
