Achillea Millefolium Rubra "Rosy Red". I'm pretty sure it was in the database but now I can't find it.

Wondering why?

Here is where my plant came from.

Here's another site offering this plant:

Here's the plant Christine, Yarrow (Achillea aspleniifolia 'Ruby Red'). Achillea millefolium var. rubra is noted as a synonym of Achillea aspleniifolia. Let me do some double checking Smiling

Edit: Oops - WRONG CULTIVAR!! Will do some checking.

Christine, it looks like a great many sites list the common name of "Rosy Red Yarrow" for Achillea millefolium var. rubra. As noted above this now a synonym for Achillea aspleniifolia. I'll look further into this.

It seems likely that Rosy Red Yarrow is a common name as noted above. Even the second link you provided is using it as a common name for Achillea Millefolium Rubra. I've added the common name to Yarrow (Achillea aspleniifolia), as well as the Also sold as name of Achillea millefolium 'Rosy Red'.
