Quick Overview:

‘Paprika’ is a spreading, mat-forming common yarrow cultivar which is noted for its deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, medium green foliage and its tiny, long-lasting, dusty-red flowers with yellow centers which appear in dense, flattened, compound corymbs (to 2-3" across) throughout the summer on stems typically rising 1.5-2′ tall. Initial flower color fades, sometimes rather quickly, to light pink, creamy yellow and brown. Foliage has a strong, somewhat spicy aroma which persists when used in dried arrangements. Millefolium means "thousand-leaf" in reference to its fern-like foliage.

Description

Best grown in lean, dry to medium moisture, well-drained sandy loams in full sun. Does well in average garden soils and tolerates poor soils as long as drainage is good. Avoid heavy clays and moist, rich, fertile soils. Tolerates hot, humid summers and drought. Best sited in locations protected from strong winds.
