Description

Achillea 'Apricot Delight' is sold commercially as a member of the TUTTI FRUTTI™ Series. It has deep reddish-apricot blooms that mature to a pale salmon, giving a multicolored effect. The flower heads stand 12 to 16 inches high on sturdy compact stems and bloom from early until late summer. It likes full sun and tolerates drought well. It is attractive to butterflies while resistant to deer and rabbits. This is a favorite as a cut flower and is also excellent as a dried flower. The genus name Achillea is in reference to Achilles, hero of the Trojan Wars in Greek mythology, who used the plant medicinally to stop bleeding and heal the wounds of his soldiers.
