Achillea millefolium

Common Yarrow

Yarrow is an easy perennial, growing in nearly any sunny situation, even where there is poor soil. Plants form low mounds of fragrant ferny foliage, with clusters of flowers appearing on upright stems in early summer. This selection has white clusters. Good for cutting, fresh or dried. Remove faded flowers regularly to promote continued blooming. Inclined to spread, so site this carefully or plan to reduce the clumps each spring. Easily divided in fall or early spring. Plants may be trimmed back hard after the first flush of bloom, to maintain a compact habit. Heat tolerant.
