Achillea 'Love Parade', 'Love Parade' Yarrow


Native to Siberia, Achillea sibirica subsp. camschatica 'Love Parade' (Yarrow) is an upright, tufted, perennial with large umbels of soft pink flowers with pale yellow stamens from early summer to early fall. Attractive to butterflies, the charming blossoms rise atop an equally attractive foliage of bright green, almost shiny, leathery, dark green, lance-shaped leaves. Good-looking, compact, bushy and heat loving, this eye-catching beauty enlivens any sunny corner of the garden.

  • Grows up to 18-24 in. tall (45-60 cm) and 14-18 in. wide (35-45 cm).
  • Easy care, drought, heat, humidity, deer and rabbit tolerant, this Achillea is a perennial that is rich in many qualities aside from its good looks!
  • Thrives in full sun in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Dry soils are tolerated as long as drainage is good. Avoid rich, moist soils which would cause your Yarrow to get floppy or leggy. Good drainage is essential.

  • Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (every 3-4 years). Propagate by seed.

Achillea, commonly known as Yarrow, belongs to the Asteraceae family, which also includes asters, chrysanthemums, and sunflowers. The genus was named after Achilles, hero of the Trojan Wars in Greek mythology, who used the plant to stop the bleeding and heal the wounds of his soldiers. Achillea millefolium (Common Yarrow) is native to most of Europe and temperate parts of western Asia. Brightening the garden throughout the summer, this perennial plant is versatile, easy to propagate and available in a wide range of sizes and colors.
