Achillea millefolium 'Paprika' (Asteraceae)
(ah-KILL-ee-ah mill-eh-FOE-lee-um)

This popular yarrow hybrid stands out with its intense crimson-red blooms that fade to terracotta, creating a multi-hued effect atop stems of lacy green foliage. Low-maintenance and vigorous, Yarrow flowers through most of the summer and bloom can be extended by deadheading. 'Paprika' likes hot well-drained sites and is drought-tolerant once established. Attracts butterflies, but not deer. Great for cut flowers or containers.
