From the Desert Eve™ Series, Yarrow is on butterflies’ favorite plant list and the large bright mustard-yellow flower clusters form a perfect landing pad for them. The compact upright habit of foliage has a pleasant spicy scent that persists even when used in dried arrangements. Earlier flowering than typical Achillea varieties, plus compact growth and flower clusters up to 4” across make this series especially desirable.

Yarrow profusely flowers on sturdy stems, excellent for cut or dried flower arrangements and is an appealing perennial for summer through fall color in your sun-loving garden. Heat and humidity tolerant.

Achillea General Information

Achillea are perfect for that hard-to-grow spot in your garden. Tolerant of drought, wind and heat; these selections grow well in almost any soil type. Excellent fresh cut flowers or dried. Flowers from summer to early fall and blooms are irresistible to butterflies. They do spread, so give them room to fill in.

Achillea Plant Care

Yarrows are low maintenance and best in full sun with well-drained soil. Remove spent blossoms to promote continuous flowering. Plants can be cleaned up in spring or fall. Leave any fresh fall foliage to overwinter. Divide in spring or fall every 4-5 years.
