Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on Jan 11th 2023
Those who live in actual deserts know: Evening is that delightful time you wait for all day, biding your time until the heat of the day wanes and the colors of the sky grow deep and mellow.
Achillea Desert Eve™ varieties are bred for excellent vigor, compact growth and big flower heads, up to 4” across. They’re perfect for landscape, container or vase. Foliage is ferny and fragrant.
‘Deep Rose’ Big umbels of deep rose-pink florets.
Red Improved PP22333 Rich red blooms with gold stamens.
‘Terracotta’ An unusual earthy hue, described by some as “toasty orange.”
Yellow PP22369 Bright lemon-yellow combines nicely with other colors.
Achillea is known as a long-day obligate perennial. Vernalization is not required to flower Desert Eve™ varieties. The series is adaptable to a wide range of soils, tolerates humidity better than older types, and ranks among the earliest blooming “yarrows” you can grow!
They thrive in full sun to part shade. All varieties stand 12 – 18” tall and are hardy in Zones 4 – 9.
