Achillea millefolium “Smiling Queen” is a stunning, compact, and bushy, herbaceous perennial. It has green ferny, divided leaves which are pleasantly aromatic. It produces clusters of long-lasting deep pink flowers, in profusion in early summer lasting right through until early autumn. The stunning flower colour makes it very attractive to butterflies. ‘Smiling Queen’ is suitable for herbaceous beds and borders, as its vibrant colours will brighten up anywhere in the garden. It is also very suitable for meadows, cottage gardens, and as a cut flower. It can reach a maximum mature height of 70 cm and spread of 60 cm.
Suggested care: Achillea millefolium “Smiling Queen” is suitable for well-drained soils positioned in full sun and an open position. It is undoubtedly an easy plant to care for as it is drought, heat, and humidity tolerant! Deadheading faded blooms should encourage more buds to form over a long season.
Planting Instructions: Break up the soil well before planting and dig a hole twice the size of the pot. Remove plant from the pot by tapping the rim of the pot in ‘up side down’ position. Do not pull the plant from the pot. Firm soil after planting and water regularly for the first month.
