Achillea ‘Feuerland’ is adding a vibrant splash of warm orange to the Herbaceous Island Beds.
The genus Achillea numbers some 80 species of mainly herbaceous perennials from the northern hemisphere. Many are highly valued for their ornamental value, including this one, which displays burnt orange flowers fading to a soft apricot, at 75cm in height. All produce small, daisy-like flower heads, often arranged in flat corymbs, and this arrangement, combined with soft, greying foliage makes them a great choice to add extra texture to the border. All enjoy a well-drained position in full sun. This is a German hybrid raised from a cross between A. millefolium and A. ‘Taygetea’, and the hybrid name means appropriately ‘Fireland’.
