Yarrow (Achillea millefolium 'Terracotta')
ah-KILL-lee-ah mil-lih-FOE-lee-um
Genus:  Achillea
Flat-topped corymbs of small, daisy-like flowers in colors of salmon-peach to yellow-orange are borne simultaneously on one plant up to 2 feet tall and wide. Flowers are complemented by silvery-green, finely-textured foliage.
Care:  Provide well-drained soil in full sun. Grows vigorously and, if not divided regularly, will quickly outgrow its welcomed space. Once established, Achillea millefolium cultivars prove to be drought tolerant.
Propagation:  Divide in spring or autumn.
Problems:  Aphids, powdery mildew.
