Achillea millefolium 'Paprika' (Paprika Yarrow) - This striking perennial yarrow forms a spreading mat of fern-like, mid-green leaves to 3 feet wide. The large flat heads, rising 18 inches above the foliage have yellow centered scarlet red flowers that age attractively from red through salmon pink, creamy yellow to brown beginning in late spring and continuing through summer. Plant in full sun to light shade and irrigate regularly. Can withstand summer drought but looks much better when irrigated and grown in full sun. Hardy to at least 0 degrees F. Sometimes listed as one of the Galaxy Hybrids (A. millefolium x A. 'Taygetea'), it is however listed by such sources as "The Royal Horticultural Society Index of Garden Plants" and "The American Horticultural Society A to Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants" as a cultivar of A. millefolium. Good nectar source for butterflies.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Achillea 'Paprika'.
