Achillea millefolium 'Paprika'


'Paprika' is a spreading, mat-forming common yarrow cultivar which is noted for its deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, medium green foliage and its tiny, long-lasting, dusty-red flowers with yellow centers which appear in dense, flattened, compound corymbs (to 2-3" across) throughout the summer on stems typically rising 1.5-2' tall. Initial flower color fades, sometimes rather quickly, to light pink, creamy yellow and brown. Foliage has a strong, somewhat spicy aroma which persists when used in dried arrangements.
