Achilleas are traditional border flowers valued for their feathery foliage and striking flat, flowerheads which are carried through summer. They team well with other perennial flowers and are a useful for a traditional herbaceous border. They also look well in island beds and other perennial planting schemes.
Achillea ‘Paprika’ bears scarlet flowers that fades to pink-red with age, in contrast with finely divided grey-green leaves. It’s a good choice for growing in cottage and wildlife garden schemes, particularly as the flowers are attractive to hoverflies.
