Achillea millefolium (Yarrow) Achillea millefolium (Yarrow) Achillea millefolium (Yarrow)

Seeds Per Package: 25

Description: Wild Yarrow has aromatic foliage and will occasionally have pale pink flowers. Yarrow is often over-looked as plain or uninteresting but it provides a critical backdrop or contrast color to the landscape that when lacking seems to make the more “colorful” blooms less vivid. Yarrow is an aggressive plant but this can be an advantage in large spaces, hard to grow areas or as erosion control on slopes and embankments. Yarrow is a good choice for Bees and/or Butterflies gardens.

Found in Nature: Dry to moist open to shaded meadows, ditches and woodlands.

Distribution: Common - Prairies, Rocky Mountains, Parklands and Boreal Forest.

Notes: Available as larger potted stock - pick up only.
