Achillea tutti-frutti 'Saucy Seduction'


Achillea tutti-frutti 'Saucy Seduction' (Achillea)

Where 'do' they get these names from! The 'tutti-frutti' bit seems to be a new strain of Achillea.

I love Yarrow...finally got it to grow in my front garden...was supposed to be orangey-red...but it's white!! alas. Haven't a clue what their trying to say with "tutti fruitti"...it looks more like a strawberry milkshake! Just another case of fooling around with as wildflower's genes...

Does look like a lovely colour :o)

20 Jul, 2010

 

Nice. I must admit I agree with you about the ame; I much prefer a saucy seduction!

20 Jul, 2010

 

Hmmm...I could have guessed that, Toto!

Pip - Lori... yes, I've found that a lot of Achillea last as a lovely colour for a few years and then revert to being 'Yarrow', and an 'off-white' colour. They get removed then!

Silly name pretty flower :-)

20 Jul, 2010

 

Absolutely! It's ridiculous. :-(((

20 Jul, 2010

 

They probably think it's creative! Still not the worst one,some the new echinaceas are horrid, like 'Tomato Soup' and 'Mac N' Cheese'.....

20 Jul, 2010

 

Oh dearie me. I won't be buying them! That's a real turn-off...

20 Jul, 2010

 

Tomato Soup? lol.... sounds like it's a failed attempt to produce orange strains...but Mac'n'cheese? Please!! they must be bulimic!

21 Jul, 2010

 

Dreadful names. Simply awful! :-(((((((

21 Jul, 2010

 

Personally I don't think your flowers should tell what you might have for dinner...

22 Jul, 2010

 

LOL......how true! Have you thought that they 'could' be edible ones? :-D)

22 Jul, 2010

 

LOL :-)

22 Jul, 2010

 

I bet the next thing will be Tomato-and-cheese LOL

23 Jul, 2010

 

Eeeeeuuuuggggghhhhhhh!!!!!! The mind boggles!

23 Jul, 2010

 

Spaghetti bolognese,or maybe carbonara!!!! ;-)

23 Jul, 2010

 

Fish 'n' chips 'n' mushy peas????

23 Jul, 2010

 

Hah,we can be on that forever...:-)))

24 Jul, 2010

 

How about 'chicken Schnitzel' or maybe 'Mortal sin cheesecake'? I could live on that forever LOL

25 Jul, 2010

 

Fun, isn't it - we should hire ourselves out to the plant breeders!

Raspberry Shortcake, anyone? I can imagine that one....:-))))

25 Jul, 2010

 

Lol,a quick googling gives you a ‘Raspberry Tart’ Echinacea :-)))

25 Jul, 2010

 

Too late, too late! Something more outlandish, I think....'Lemon or Orange Soufflee'? Classy plant!

25 Jul, 2010

 

there is ‘Meringue’ :-)

25 Jul, 2010

 

Hmmm....needs a sauce or cream with it, though! 'Whipped Cream Meringue'...lol.

25 Jul, 2010

 

There's a Coreopsis 'Creme Brulee'.Love google,hah???

25 Jul, 2010

 

I know that one, I have it already!

Hmm...'Coronation Chicken'? (what a horrible colour 'that' flower would be!) lol

25 Jul, 2010

 

ahaha surely you jest? the person who named the Achillea "saucy seduction" must have O.D.'d on Viagra.

25 Jul, 2010

 

Of course we jest, Lori... how about 'Sticky Date Pudding'? Yum!

26 Jul, 2010

 

Or 'Zabaglione'...now there's a good name - lots of people would accept that as a 'true' flower name - they might even think that Signor Z. had bred the plant! LOL.

Or - how about taking up Lori's thought on all this and call one 'Viagra'...maybe not - men might eat it for real, and hope! Hahaha....

26 Jul, 2010

 

Very funny....

26 Jul, 2010

 

Oh, I am, I am! ;-D)

26 Jul, 2010

 

We'll probably have to suffer food and seductive names for a while.Imagine when they get borded of that???

27 Jul, 2010

 

What will it be next? Transport? A Dahlia called 'London Bus'????? LOL.

27 Jul, 2010

 

Lets hope Dahlia 'London Bus' is bright red. May I suggest 'New York Taxi Cab' for a yellow cultivar?

28 Jul, 2010

 

I like that - a definite! :-))) There's an open-top bus that goes onto the moors - a brownish-red colour. So we could have Achillea 'Quantock Tour'....??

28 Jul, 2010

 

LOL :o)

28 Jul, 2010

 

Belive it or not,the creator of 'Mac n' Cheese' have got now an even more miserable Echinacea 'Now Cheesier'.I wish I was joking......

29 Jul, 2010

 

I wish you were, too....I would hesitate before buying that plant, I have to say. The name really puts me off...:-(((

29 Jul, 2010

 

My Gosh when will they stop? Although why anyone would call a plant 'Mac'n'cheese' it the first place? One would hope the flowers were yellow.

30 Jul, 2010

 

Yeah,yellow:-) Name is a definite put of!
Maybe some dark tulip will get named London cab ;-))

30 Jul, 2010

 

LOL. I'll stick to 'Queen of Night' thanks. :-)))

30 Jul, 2010

 

Some of those fancy Clematis hybrids are pretty confusing if you ask me...

31 Jul, 2010

 

How true! Imagine a committee sitting round scratching their heads for more outlandish names - with lists of the ones that already exist!

31 Jul, 2010

 

Yeah,and reject anything that sounds to 'normal' !

31 Jul, 2010

 

LOL......What's 'normal' these days?

1 Aug, 2010

 

Probably something like Clematis 'Bright Pink' or horror of horrors, 'Sunny Yellow'!

1 Aug, 2010

 

Noooooooo....those names are just AWFUL!! :-(((((

1 Aug, 2010

 

Okay, how bout just 'Pink' or 'Lilac'... doesn't work does it???

2 Aug, 2010

 

Nope. :-(((

2 Aug, 2010

 

'Sunny Yellow' is a sunflower waiting to be unleashed on us!!!!

2 Aug, 2010

 

At least it's appropriate to the plant - not something to eat. LOL.

2 Aug, 2010

 

lol

2 Aug, 2010

 

How about changing the 'Chocolate Cosmos' to 'Marmite on toast'?????? LOL

2 Aug, 2010

 

Or even better, something like 'Decadent Saucy Marmite Seduction'...

3 Aug, 2010

 

Yuck!

3 Aug, 2010

 

LOL, Pip.....that's sooooo funny! LOL.

3 Aug, 2010

 

;o)))

4 Aug, 2010

 

Oh, and by the way, I didn't write them down, but I spotted more Achilleas in the tutti-frutti seduction series - the name was so long on the label I couldn't even read the last part! (I wouldn't have bought it, anyway. The flower was a really dull faded pink...)
