Description

'Pink Island Form' has small bright pink flowers packed together in large flat topped flowerheads. The stems stand 2’ tall with dark green fernlike foliage. It blooms from early summer to early fall. It is attractive to butterflies, 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.
