Achillea ‘Saucy Seduction’, common name ‘Saucy Seduction’ Yarrow.
This deer resistant perennial is an excellent addition to any garden. This perennial is extremely hardy in zones 4 to 8 and loves sun. They start blooming in early summer and bloom right on into fall.
They get 18″ to 24″ tall but what we do is let them flush out in the spring, then cut them back to about 6″ to 9″. What this does is allows them to fill out nicely, become more sturdy, then when they start blooming they hold up much better.
This is a patented plant, that’s what the “PP20782” after the name means. That means that it is against the law to propagate this plants without being a licensed grower for this particular plant and for folks like me and you it’s just not worth trying to become a licensed grower.

So how do I grow it if I’m not allowed to?
I’m not allow to propagate it and of course I don’t. But you and I are allowed to buy small plugs from a licensed grower, pay the very small royalty and we have to buy a plant tag which is really just a really nice tag that helps to sell the plant while at the same time displaying the plant patent information.
I actually buy a lot of things like this to grow and sell in my nursery.
