Plant Guardians

Achillea ‘Tissington Old Rose’


Likely named from Tissington Nurseries, which were established in 2006, this Achillea, or Yarrow, is a mat-forming herbaceous perennial. This cultivar has flattened clusters of soft pink flowerheads above an aromatic feathery foliage, with petal arrangements similar to a daisy. These summer-flowering blossoms help to attract beneficial insects to both gravel and wildlife gardens.
