History:
'Apricot Delight' was derived from a breeding program that focused on obtaining Achillea cultivars with a long blooming habit and flower colors that are resistant to fading. 'Apricot Delight' was selected in the summer of 2001 as a whole plant mutation that arose from repeated selections from seed originally sown of the seed strain Achillea 'Summer Pastels' (not patented) in Boskoop, The Netherlands.
