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 'Pink Grapefruit'

- Achillea millefolium 'Summer Pastels'
- Achillea millefolium 'Sunny Seduction'
I purchased a 1-gallon plant at Laymans in September 2010 and planted it in the raised perennial bed. It was in bloom at the time and continued to bloom until our first frost in November. The flowers are bright and stand out well in the garden. In spring 2011 it was the first of the Yarrows to bloom and started in late April.
