Plant Type: Perennials
Luscious apple-red and paprika colored flowers with sulphur yellow centers are among the most beautiful of all yarrows. From early to late summer, tall flower stems are topped with flat heads of these brightly colored blossoms. This species has gray-green, ferny leaves that form a low, spreading clump. It is a quick spreader and can form large masses if left unchecked.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Yarrow is one of the easiest perennials to grow and is a good choice for beginners. All it needs is full sun and well-drained soil. It thrives in average to poor soil and is drought tolerant once established. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be tall and floppy. After the flowers have faded, cut the plant back by half. This will likely stimulate a second flush of blooms in late summer. Do not let plants go to seed. Most varieties do not come true from seed. Divide every few years to keep plants to a manageable size.
