Terracotta Yarrow is an upright clumping herbaceous perennial with deeply dissected dark green aromatic foliage and earth toned flowers.  The large flower clusters open yellow and mature to coppery bronze bloom on sturdy stems above the foliage all summer.  An excellent cut flower that retains color when dried.  Heat and drought tolerant.  Prefers full sun and well-drained soils.
