Common Yarrow is native to Europe and western Asia, and it has a long history in the cultures of those regions. In fact, its botanical name, Achillea, stems from the belief that the mythological Greek hero Achilles used this plant to heal his soldiers’ wounds. Modern day Yarrows come in many exciting new colors, thanks to careful selection and breeding work over the years. Saucy Seduction™ Yarrow originated at a nursery in the Netherlands in 2003. It appeared as a random mutation of a less intensely colored selection that was part of the ‘Summer Pastels’ series.
Saucy Seduction™ Yarrow blossoms are borne on strong stems, which makes for excellent plant performance in the garden and great cutting material, too. Arrangements brighten your home and give it a cozy feel. There’s nothing like fresh-cut flowers from the garden! Cutting flowers also encourages new buds to form on the plant, keeping the show going all summer.
How to Grow
Plant Saucy Seduction™ Yarrow in a sunny, open site. Go easy on the water and fertilizer—this Spirit doesn’t like to be spoiled. It will need regular water during the establishment period, but then will perform better if kept on the dry side. Rich soil and wet conditions will lead to floppy growth. Every few years, you may need to dig up and divide Saucy Seduction™ to keep it growing vigorously. Simply discard old, weak sections and replant the young, strong-growing sections, Cut back old stems in late fall or whenever they begin to look unattractive to make way for early spring growth.
