Yarrow is a native plant very easy to care for. Its colorful, flat-top blooms rise above clusters of ferny foliage that offers a wildflower look to any garden. It comes in a variety of colors; however, my favorite is yellow. It will thrive with almost no care, making it a good candidate for plantings in open areas and along the edges in the back of your perennial garden, since it grows about 4’.
Yarrow is a tough plant that resist drought, is rarely eaten by deer and rabbits, and spread moderately quickly, making yarrow a good choice for massing in borders. If deadheaded after its first flush of blooms fade, yarrow will re-bloom quite nicely. If left to dry on the plant, flower clusters of some types provide winter interest. Flowers of yarrow are excellent either in fresh or dried arrangements.
Stay tuned for my Yarrow Dry Flower arrangement for this fall.
