Hardiness Zone: 3

Description:

An outstanding yarrow from the Netherlands, this hardy plant has dark rosy red flowers that refuse to fade; prefers to be planted in infertile soil and perfect for xeriscapes

Ornamental Features

Red Velvet Yarrow is draped in stunning dark red flat-top flowers at the ends of the stems from early to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its attractive tomentose ferny leaves remain grayish green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Red Velvet Yarrow is an herbaceous perennial with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This is a high maintenance plant that will require regular care and upkeep, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. Gardeners should be aware of the following characteristic(s) that may warrant special consideration;

  • Spreading
  • Self-Seeding

Red Velvet Yarrow is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • Border Edging
  • General Garden Use
  • Groundcover
  • Naturalizing And Woodland Gardens
  • Container Planting

Planting & Growing

Red Velvet Yarrow will grow to be about 30 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 30 inches. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to dry locations, and dislikes excessive moisture. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in poor soils. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selection of a native North American species. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.

Red Velvet Yarrow is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor pots and containers. Because of its spreading habit of growth, it is ideally suited for use as a ‘spiller’ in the ‘spiller-thriller-filler’ container combination; plant it near the edges where it can spill gracefully over the pot. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.

Red Velvet Yarrow is a drought tolerant perennial flower with bright red flowers from early to late summer. Plants spread slow and form a dense carpet of foliage thick enough to prevent most weeds from growing through. Unlike many other similarly colored Yarrow varieties that tend to start producing pink flowers by mid-summer, ‘Red Velvet’ continues to produce dark red color throughout the summer. Red Velvet is a popular choice for florists due to the strong, tall stems and excellent color retention.
Propagating Red Velvet Yarrow Yarrow is easily propagated in early spring by taking clump divisions. Digging out pieces at least four inches deep and three inches in diameter will encourage plants to flower heavily in their first season.
Watering and Fertilizing Red Velvet Yarrow Red Velvet is a drought tolerant species but has a much shorter flowering season without regular summer irrigation. Plants in the ground flower best when watered twice per week during hot weather and fertilized once each spring with a slow release pellet like Osmocote. Yarrow prefers well drained soil but can grow in clay soils as well. When growing Yarrow in containers annual fertilizer applications are more important to maintain optimal flowering conditions, and watering will need to be more frequent.
Pruning/Deadheading Red Velvet Yarrow Continual flowering is greatly increased by deadheading (removing the old flowers) but you can also occasionally prune the plant to a few inches tall if flowering has become less frequent. In the fall the leaves die back to the ground and will resprout in the spring, the old leaves can be removed for aesthetic purposes in the fall but they degrade into mulch quickly on their own.

How Your Plants Are Packaged And Shipped


A bare root Sitka Spruce
A 2 gallon Sitka Spruce with all the soil washed away Bare root and washed root are very similar but in the nursery trade typically bare root plants are trees which are grown in the field and dug up in the winter with no soil attached. These plants are typically cheaper due to lower growing costs and are popular for large projects where a large number of plants are needed. When the are dug they lose any roots that grew away from the main root ball and typically these plants will grow a little slower in their first year as they focus on producing new roots before returning to fast top growth. Despite the longer establishment period, bare root plants benefit from the root pruning and will produce a superior long-term root structure than washed root plants. Certain plant species and varieties that are prone to poor root system development are only available bare root for this reason. Bare root plants have high success rates but are not tolerant of planting directly into windy areas, especially with evergreen species as the remaining roots will not be sufficient to withstand drying winds. If you are planting in high-wind areas you should consider ordering washed root plants.
Washed root plants are grown in containers like one or two gallon pots in a standard nursery setting and can ship much earlier in the fall because we don’t have to wait for deep winter dormancy before handling the plants. For shipping the plants are removed from their containers and the soil is gently washed off of the roots, preserving most of the small feeder roots. We make minor root pruning cuts to elimate clumps of circling roots from some plants but typically don’t remove more than about 5-10% of the fine roots, compared to bare root plants which typically lose around 60-70% of the fine feeder roots. Washed root plants are much quicker to establish and are suitable for planting directly in windy locations but because of the higher growing costs and shipping weight will be more expensive than field grown bare root plants. Some plant species that are especially prone to root circling are not grown in containers but only in the field.
For most plant species we choose the growing method that has the highest success rate for that plant’s root structure but some plants can be grown just as well either way so both forms can be listed for sale at once. Under the “availability” section for each plant variety any plants listed by container size (such as 1 gallon, 2 gallon, etc.) are washed root plants while plants listed by height (such as 20-30 inches tall) or any listing saying “field grown” are bare root plants.

Packaging Plants For Shipping


Most plants are shipped wrapped in newspaper, then moistened. Large bundles of plants can be shipped in a single long box. Some plants, usually bamboo, are shipped in their container while others have their roots washed of soil and wrapped in damp paper and plastic. Most plant varieties can be shipped year-round, but sometimes certain plant species or large sizes do best when shipped dormant. You can order these to reserve yours during the summer and then they will be shipped in November when they are ready to go.
Your plants are placed in tight fitting boxes and strapped to the box so they don’t move around and sustain damage. These are 3′ tall Coast Redwoods.

Pruning

We prune both the tops and the roots of our plants at least once per year while they are growing in our nursery to ensure they develop a strong, dense form. Regular annual pruning goes a long way to ensure a healthy branching structure and this is often a missed step in many nurseries. Pruning a plant back hard after it has been neglected pruning-wise often results in an irregular branch habit or multiple leaders. However, with annual pruning this is not the case and so it is important to start pruning even in the first year of growth. We also prune the roots of our plants every winter which causes them to produce a much more branched structure and helps to elimate tangled masses that hinder future development. Plants that have been root pruned establish themselves much more quickly than root bound plants. Generally, hardwood plants will be pruned in the winter and conifers will be pruned in the summer. Pruning conifers is a little bit trickier because it must be done while the new candles are still young, otherwise it can take an extra year to form a new upright leader bud which slows the next year’s growth rate down.

Pruning For Shipping

Before shipping plants we prune the tops and roots one last time. Conifers will usually have very little top pruning except to balance long branches. Shrubs are usually pruned to around 1-2 feet tall to encourage low branch development and small to medium sized trees are usually pruned to around 36-40 inches. Pruning trees at this height encourages dominant branches to begin forming around 3 feet from the ground which typically looks the best in most situations. However, if you want a tree to have branching start higher (some city codes require trees to not branch below 4 feet) we have longer boxes available. To request taller trees please contact us at least three days before your ship date. Depending on your location and the shipping routes there may be a fee for oversize package handling (usually about $15 for a 60″ box).

Tall trees (Oaks, Ginkgo, large Maples, etc.) are pruned to 40″ to encourage crown development from about 36″ and up
Small and medium trees (short Maples, Redbuds, Stewartia, etc.) are pruned 10-20″ above the prune line from last year
Shrubs (Weigela, Hydrangea, Viburnum, etc.) are pruned to 18″ tall and root pruned one last time

Achillea – Care Guide

Achillea are totally hardy and totally reliable flowering herbaceous plants for any garden in the UK. They are perennials from the northern hemisphere from grassland areas but have been bred, varied in colour and improved for garden use by generations of breeding work. Achillea have aromatic leaves which are grey or green with pinnate fern-like leaves and daisy like flower heads in corymbs both in summer and on into autumn. As such they are ideal plants for any herbaceous border and grow well alongside a whole host of other summer and autumn flowering herbaceous plants. They are clump forming and fairly indestructible.

Achillea flower heads are excellent for cutting and drying in a warm shed or hot greenhouse but they should be cut when the flowers show colour but are not actually fully out.

They grow best in moist but well drained soil in an open site in sun. They will however tolerate almost any situations in any garden. Varieties of Achillea filipendula will naturalise well in a grassland or meadow context where they can perform alongside native wild forms of achillea which grow or have hybridised in parts of the UK.

After flowering is complete, and autumn turns to winter, achillea should be cut back to ground level preferably before the plants go completely dormant and the old flower spikes turn brown. Avoiding wasting energy on setting seeds is just as important in these plants as the more obvious ones like lupins or delphiniums. Cutting them back in good time will encourage the clumps to develop and spread underground to perform better next year.

Achillea can be readily divided when dormant. As a clump gets old and tired with fewer flowers, dig it up and jettison all but the side shoot clumps which can be planted back. Should you divide and replant your achillea each year? We think probably not, but you should not leave it for too many years before you get to work for the best ongoing results.

The brightly coloured flowers of most flat head varieties can be easily dried for indoor decoration. One of the best types for drying is A. filipendulina (shown right).

Greek tradition claims that Achillea originally sprang from the blood of the hero Achilles, who was killed at the siege of Troy.

Family: Asteraceae

Hardiness: Most varieties are hardy in the UK.

Planting and Growing Achillea

Easy to grow herbaceous plant that likes any well-drained garden soil. Plant in full sun or semi-shade. Tolerates dry conditions. Do not plant in soil that can become waterlogged.

Plant pot grown plants from October to march in a sunny position, in a well drained soil. Best planted in groups of three or five to form a drift of colour.

Great for mixed borders and cottage gardens. Contrasts well with other herbaceous plants, especially if planted in mid-border drifts. Also good for wild and informal gardens and an ideal choice for gravel gardens or raised beds. Dwarf kinds are useful for the rock garden.

Most varieties provide good ground cover but some types can become invasive.

Most forms are good for cut flowers and drying.

Taking Care of Achillea

Requires little attention once established. Dead-head regularly to extend flowering period. Staking is seldom necessary, except for very tall varieties in exposed areas.

Cut down to ground level in the autumn. Alternatively, you can leave the seed heads over-winter to form an architectural effect, then cut back in early Spring.

Pests and Diseases

Generally trouble-free. Susceptible to attack by aphids. Can be affected by powdery mildews.

Preparing Achillea as a Dried Flower

Good for cutting and ideal for use as dried flowers if picked before fading begins. To dry, hang individual stems or small loose bunches, upside down in a cool, dark, dry airy place.

Propagating Achillea

Sow seeds in the open in late spring or divide mature clumps when the plant is dormant, in early autumn or spring.

Short 1-3in (3-8cm ) softwood cuttings can be rooted in a cold frame or a propagator. However, don’t let the foliage become over wet.

Popular Varieties of Achillea Grown in the UK
