Description

'Lilac Beauty' has small rosy lilac flowers packed together in large flat topped flowerheads. With age, the color fades to a pink lilac. The stems stand 24 “tall with gray green fernlike foliage. It does best in full sun and blooms from early summer to early fall. It is attractive to buttterflies, bees 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.
