Yarrow Pastel Mix (Achillea millefolium) These lovely perennial plants have been growing here on our farm for decades. A wonderful blend of pastel-like shades of pink, apricot, pale yellow, and lavender. Yarrow makes an excellent cut flower including its fern-like foliage. Stems reach 24-30 inches, producing large 3-5 inch umbels of pastel blooms. Bouquets have a very long vase life. This is a very easy to start hardy (Zone 2) perennial that will flower in the first year. Yarrow can tolerate drought once it is established and will attract beneficial insects such as damsel bugs, lady beetles, parasitic wasps and lacewings.
