Achillea 'Walther Funcke' has tiny brick-red flowers with yellow centers clustered together in densely packed, flat-topped flower heads. The stems stand 15 to 24 inches high with fragrant, deeply cut foliage. This cultivar likes full sun and blooms from mid- summer to early fall. It is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds anad resistant to deer, rabbits, and drought. This is a favorite 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.
