Here, each lipstick-pink floret is lightly kissed with white, adding a touch of impudence to borders and bouquets. Like all the Seduction Yarrows, 'Saucy Seduction' is vigorous and compact (about 18-24in tall) with a distinctive, upright habit and strong stems that support flower heads measuring 2-4in across. The finely cut, ferny foliage has a spicy scent, which may explain why deer pass it by. PP 20,782
Yarrows are valuable garden plants from the North Temperate Zone that are widely grown for the masses of flowers they bear throughout much of the summer. Their flattened flower heads introduce a fresh shape into the perennial border. Excellent as cut flowers, fresh or dried. Yarrows thrive in full sun and well-drained soil.
