Achillea - named after the Greek hero Achilles - loves dry, sunny spots where it is a magnet for butterflies and other pollinators. Commonly known as yarrow, Achillea is a member of the daisy family with compound flower heads made up, on close examination of hundreds of tiny daisy-like florets. Available in both pastel and strong colours, there's an Achillea for every colour scheme which they keep going not only because they flower from June to September but also because the flowers look great as they fade. Although deadheading does encourage more. Invaluable in any sunny border, Achillea are an essential part of our herbaceous plant selection.
