‘Oertel’s Rose’ is a cultivated variety of our native Common Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) which has been selected for its vivid color, compact size and prolific blooming. From July through September, vibrant magenta flowers emerge, aging to pale pink or white. This variation creates a lovely multicolored effect in larger drifts. The flowers are 2-4″ flat-headed panicles on single stalks above mounds of silvery, dissected foliage. The flowers make an excellent addition to cut arrangements and can be dried.
This variety was discovered in the Midwest by Mae Oertel (rhymes with turtle), growing in a roadside ditch.
