Achillea millefolium 'Lavender Beauty' (Lavender Yarrow) - This selection of Yarrow carries its lavender pink flowers over green fern-like foliage in the spring and summer. Best in sun, with moderate watering. Grows to about 2'x3'. Hardy to <0 degrees F. We orignially received this plant in 1989 as 'Lavender Beauty' but note that it is sometime listed as a synonym of Achillea millefolium 'Lilac Beauty', which is sometimes listed as 'Forncett Beauty'. In Piers Trehane's "Index Hortensis" 'Lavender Beauty' and 'Lilac Beauty' are listed as distinct cultivars. 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 'Lavender Beauty'.
