Checking in with ‘Sassy Summer Sangria’

Last spring I planted a ‘Sassy Summer Sangria’ yarrow with the hopes that this cultivar would actually thrive in my flowerbed. I’ve planted many yarrows in the past and they all seem to disappear on me eventually.

Here’s a photo of last summer’s bright red flowers:

Yarrows attract many different pollinators, and the plants are deer and rabbit resistant and tolerate dry conditions.

Not only did ‘Sassy Sangria Summer’ come back this year, but I’ve never had a yarrow put out this many buds before. It’s possible that part of that has to do with the mild winter we had, but my other two yarrow plants don’t look this promising:

‘Sassy Summer Sangria’ grows 30 inches tall and prefers full sun. I should have flowers opening soon!
