Achillea Desert Eve™ series

Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on Jan 12th 2024

Those who live in actual deserts know, evening is that delightful time you wait for all day, biding time until the heat of day wanes and the colors of the sky grow beautifully deep and mellow.

The heat of day? Who can imagine such a thing in January? Well-prepared growers are stocking benches and orders now with early blooming perennials. These flower champions are ready to welcome eager gardeners who will assuredly arrive that first sunny weekend of spring.

The Desert Eve™ series is one of the earliest blooming yarrows you can grow. These Achillea are adaptable to a wide range of soils and thrive in full sun to part shade. They show better tolerance for humidity than some older varieties. Spicy fragrant, ferny foliage stays neat and compact.

Bred for vigor, compact growth, and large flower heads, the colorful Desert Eve™ options stand 12-18" tall. Hardy for Zones 4-9. And, as a bonus, vernalization is not required with these varieties.

Desert Eve Red Improved PP22333

Rich, deep red blooms accented by gold stamens.

Desert Eve Yellow PP22369

Warm, sunny yellow combines nicely with other colors.
