A German hybrid, which is named after, and has the same colour as the sandstone found beside the Wesser river. The pinky-red flowers emerge from bud and age to a light dusty rose or even cream. It is a shorter variety, that has a long flowering period, and this can be extended even further by removing the faded blooms. Like all the achilleas, the flowers are irresistible to butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. Perfect for a cottage garden.Garden care: Achilleas do not like wet soil, especially in winter. Stake if necessary using bamboo canes or brushwood before the flowers appear. Cut down to the ground in late winter, but resist the urge to do this earlier, as the seed heads look lovely in the winter light. Pull out seedlings as they appear, as they rarely match the parent plant. Lift and divide large clumps in late autumn or early spring.
