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.

    Wow they are so pretty! No doubt pink is different and warm. Loved the photo!

    • Thank you Nandini! The pinks range from very pale pink through to dark crimson.

  2. I love that color! I’ve got the yellow, white and one they call a ‘terra cotta’ color but the pink looks beautiful.

    • 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.

    • Thank you Marina. I’m ‘into’ old-fashioned pinks at the moment (for some strange reason!).

  4. Wonderful. Certainly, such color reminds us old days, anyway..

    • Thank you Cocomino. It’s interesting the way certain colours remind us of the old days.

    • Thank you Fergie. They are wonderful plants – the colours sometimes soft and light, other colours deep and vibrant – and all on the same plant sometimes!

    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.
