Description

Achillea 'New Vintage Violet' is a spreading perennial boasting a profusion of violet flower clusters that have an attractive cream centre from early Summer to early Autumn. Much like a friendly garden neighbour, Violet will invite you outdoors with brightly coloured landing pads for pollinators. Their blooms are produced on upright, branching stems that float above the grey green fern like foliage. Achillea 'New Vintage Violet' has an exceptionally long flowering period from May to September.  Violet will certainly brighten up any border whilst offering the pollinators a much-needed energy boost with its easily accessible nectar yet is resistant to the rabbits having breakfast. This Achillea will most certainly brighten up any garden throughout the Summer months, it is fully hardy and suitable for a wide selection of gardens. Its versatile aesthetic will brighten any Cottage Gardens, Informal Gardens, Mediterranean Gardens or containers or low maintenance spaces. The compact height makes it ideal for under planting in your flower beds to add depth and texture to your garden design and once established is drought tolerant, so adds wonderful impactful colour to areas that require low maintenance.

Planting Conditions

Achilleas like 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 almost 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 due its tolerance of drought conditions. 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.
