From patent application (Inventor: Sahin-georgiadou, Elisabeth (Alphen aan den Rijn, NL), application date: 10/28/2008):
The new Achillea plant is a naturally-occurring whole plant mutation of Achillea millefolium 'Summer Pastels', not patented. The new Achillea plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant within a population of plants of 'Summer Pastels' in 2003 in a controlled outdoor nursery environment in Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands. The selection of this plant was based on its unique inflorescence coloration.

- Achillea millefolium 'Sunny Seduction'
I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Laymans in September 2009 and it grew quite rapidly and created a rounded mound of bright green feathery foliage with pink flowers. Came back quickly in spring 2010 and bloomed well through early summer. The the stems started to brown out - fried - dried out I believe - in the long dry spell. I would buy it again just for the foliage... and so I did in April 2011, a 4" pot from Thyme After Thyme.
