The compact height makes it ideal for under planting in your flower beds to add depth and texture to your Beds and Borders. 'New Vintage Red' once established is a very easy care Achillea and is heat and drought tolerant and is just perfect for hot, dry and sunny borders but it will require a light prune to remove any spent flower heads to encourage new blooms to appear and it is a glorious impactful plant to add to your garden that adds flowers from May right through until September.

Planting Conditions

Achillea likes any position in the garden with a full level of sun and will survive slightly sheltered or exposed positions, will grow well in moist, well-drained soil but will tolerate all most any soil type so is a good bet for any garden.

Watering & Feeding

Achillea can get all the moisture they need from rainfall so extremely low maintenance if planted into your flowerbeds. Often, intense heat in high Summer months would be the only time they would require an extra watering. Whilst establishing we recommend regular watering if your plant is placed in a pot or container. The best way to fertilise this perennial is to mulch annually in Springtime with a generous layer of well-rotted manure or garden compost of around 2-3 inches and to grow in moderately light, fertile soil which is well drained.

General Care

For perfect flower power, it is advisable to remove spent flowers once they fade and your will be encouraged to continue producing its impactful blooms right through the Summer months. Don’t forget that perennials can be cut back quite hard if needed but a light prune between May and September will encourage more of the beautiful landing pads for those bees. Pests to look out for are those nasty aphids and can be susceptible to powdery mildew.
