Achillea millefolium 'Oertel's Rose'

Common Yarrow

Achillea 'Oertel's Rose' is evergreen with green, fern-like foliage.  Oertel's Rose is more compact than other Yarrow with a mature height of 12"-15" in bloom.  Bloom clusters open rose-pink and age to white through the Summer.  Deadheading encourages more blooms and reduce spreading.  Can be cut back to basal leaves to refresh foliage and encourage more blooms late Summer. 


Oertel's Rose Yarrow prefers well drained, average to poor soil and tolerates heat, humidity and drought.  Use for borders, in mass for naturalizing, wildflower gardens, rock gardens and mixed beds. Tolerates poor soil and drought conditions.  Moderately salt tolerant.  Suitable for cut flowers and attracts butterflies.  More compact than most Yarrow.  Mature height 12"-15", spread 18"-24"
