‘Apricot Delight’ yarrow

Achillea millefolium 'Apricot Delight'

ah-KILL-lee-ah mil-lih-FOE-lee-um

'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
