"Red Velvet" Yarrow

deepest red wine flowers
upon tall feathered stems

a hardy and vigorous perennial
showy flower display appearing mid Summer

best for a bigger garden
yarrow has a reputation for being pushy

growing to 120cm high with an equivalent spread
prune to ground level each winter as per regular perennial maintenance
benefits from a nice dose of manure through winter to invigorate foliage growth
mulching always helps to retain soil moisture, but will grow under poorer conditions

available through out the year from our nursery and on-line in standard 14cm pots or in Spring as Slimline Tubes
