Pink Yarrow

A pink Yarrow (Achillea). Yarrow is a wonderful plant which comes in many different colours and which attracts a variety of insects. This pink variety has something of an ‘old-fashioned’ feel which appeals to me.

    • Thank you Sue! I saw this at a newly-planted Centenary Garden and thought it looked beautiful. They had deep yellows too which were very pretty. I know the terracotta one of which you speak and I love that too.

  1. A beautiful close up of such a wonderful plant. Yarrow makes a great addition to the composting process also via spent blooms….I’ve even used the leaves as a mulch against hot summer temperatures.

    • Thank you Eremophila. That’s interesting regarding the composting and mulch. I love these flowers and tried to grow them in a nice sunny spot which I thought would be ideal but they didn’t do very well. Will have to try again.
