Achillea sibirica 'Love Parade'
Achillea sibirica 'Love Parade' is a nice achillea growing just under two feet tall and about two feet wide. It prefers full sun where it can develop strong stems and its shiny foliage, unlike other achilleas. It has nice pastel pink flowers which are larger than achillea millefolium. Unlike other achilleas, it is clump forming rather than sending rhizamatous roots to and fro.
It is cold hardy to at least zone 4 and prefers well-drained soils. Bloom time is July in zone 5.
