History: 

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.

My Experience: 

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 more subdued than Achillea millefolium 'Pomegranate' and do not stand out quite as well in the garden.
