Yarrow is an herbaceous perennial that is known for its feathery, fern-like, aromatic foliage, and flat-topped clusters of tiny flowers. It’s easy to grow and virtually care-free. Yarrow tolerates a wide range of soil, where most other perennials fail to grow. They’re a perfect addition for your borders, cottage gardens and for mass planting in wild gardens, naturalized areas or meadows.

Yarrow is summer blooming plant that produces multiple stems with deeply-dissected, fern-like leaves that are often aromatic. These plants can reach up to a height of 30” with spread of about 24”. They’re available in a wide range of bloom colors including yellow, white, pink and red. This versatile plant is remarkably hardy and even tolerates dry spells. It attracts butterflies as well!

Planting instructions:

Choose a location with full sun and a well-drained soil. Yarrow plants survive in most soil conditions but they do not tolerate wet soils.

Prepare the planting bed by using a garden fork or tiller and loosen the soil up to 12-15 in deep and mix it with compost. Space the plants 24-30 in. apart.

Dig a hole, almost the size of the root ball and carefully plant them in this hole. Make sure that the top of the root ball is at the level of the soil surface. Fill the hole with soil and water thoroughly.

Care:

Each spring, add a thin layer of compost and a 2in. layer of much for moisture retention and weed control.

Water them if rainfall is less than 1 in. per week.

Occasional pruning will be beneficial for the plants.

To keep your plants vigorous, divide them after every 3-4 years as new growth begins in spring. Lift your plants and divide them into clumps.
