'Apricot Delight' yarrow (Achillea millefolium 'Apricot Delight')
ah-KILL-lee-ah mil-lih-FOE-lee-um
Genus:  Achillea

'Apricot Delight' has deep reddish apricot blooms that then mature to a pale salmon, and they harmonize well with other colors. 'Apricot Delight' has a long blooming season (from early to late summer, with deadheading). This cultivar is smaller than most yarrows, and the blooms make nice cut flowers. -Allan Armitage, Plants to know and grow, Fine Gardening issue #121
