Achillea millefolium 'Cerise Queen' (Rose Yarrow) - This perennial yarrow has flat heads of rose pink flowers that are held over fern-like green leaves to 1 to 2 feet high. Flowers appear in spring and summer. Plant in full sun to light shade and give moderate watering for best appearance but can survive with very little irrigation. Hardy to <0 degrees F. Attractive to butterflies and beneficial insects. This long time favorite is one of the darker pink yarrows. Since 1985, when we first started growing this plant, we have always vegetatively propagated this plant from our own stock plants and believe our selection of this fine cultivar to be superior to the 'seed' raised plants that are often offered. 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 'Cerise Queen'.
