The orange-red flowers of this yarrow are tiny, but they form in generous flattened heads, which are useful for adding horizontal interest in the planting scheme. Fading to creamy yellow as they age, they are held high throughout the summer on upright stems, which emerge from a loose clump of ferny foliage. Long-flowering and drought tolerant once established, 'Walther Funcke' works well in borders with a hot colour scheme, but it also makes a great contrast for blues and purples.

  1. Sun Exposure:

    • Achillea plants generally prefer full sun. They thrive in locations with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. While they can tolerate partial shade, they often produce more prolific blooms in sunny conditions.
  2. Soil Type:

    • Yarrow is adaptable to various soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soils. Well-drained soil is crucial to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.
  3. Moisture:

    • Once established, many Achillea varieties are drought-tolerant. They prefer drier conditions and can withstand periods of low water availability. However, consistent moisture can be beneficial, especially during dry spells.
  4. Pruning and Deadheading:

    • Regular deadheading (removing spent flowers) can encourage continuous blooming. Some varieties may benefit from occasional pruning to maintain a tidy appearance.
