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.
