'Cerise Queen' has deep pink flowers tightly packed together in large, flat topped clusters. It blooms in early summer until fall on stems that stand 2 ft tall. The foliage is feathery and fernlike. It is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds while resistant to deer, rabbits and drought. 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 to heal the wounds of his soldiers. The species name millefolium means "thousand-leaf" in reference to its fern-like foliage.
