Say 'Yes' to Yarrow

Red cultivar of yarrow, Achillea millefolium, planted in the Color Garden at Toledo Botanical Gardens. Red was the theme that year. I love all the color variations now available for this plant.

Great banner Elizabeth!

Here's the photo I used for this banner, and another shot of the same red form of yarrow.

I'd love to see photos of some of the other colors of yarrow that are now available, if you're willing to share them.

Gorgeous photos - looking very much like Achillea millefolium 'Paprika'.

Thanks so much, @HemNorth, for sharing the Achillea millefolium 'Paprika' shot. To my eyes that one looks more orange than the ones I saw and photographed, but I'm glad to have seen this one now (new to me). I'm amazed that horticulturists can bring such variety to a plant that started out as a humble wildflower, mostly white, but occasionally pink.

Hello, @arctangent - Yes, the orange shades are there, but the red and pinker shades can also appear. It could be the soil or the aging factor, but that's what I love about Paprika. The surprise factor.
The database photos show a variety of shades:


At the bottom end of Database photos, the third Plant Combination photo, by @Calif_Sue is also a Gem.

Wow! Thank you @HemNorth. I can totally relate to this phenomenon. I see it in cultivars of dahlias and peonies, which I'm more familiar with. Growing conditions (soil chemistry, weather, planting zone, etc.) play a role, I'm sure, as you suggest. I can understand the appeal of a plant that is full of surprises like Paprika.
