Easy to Grow




Latin name: Achillea millefolium
Gardeners treasure yarrow for its ability to thrive in poor, dry soils. The hybrids such as "paprika" will bloom the first season. Removal of the spent red flowers assures months of continuous color. Moderately faded flowers can be quite beautiful, though, so avoid being too quick with the clippers. The flower heads retain their rich color if cut and hung upside-down when nearly fully open. The fernlike, aromatic foliage is silvery and highly decorative in its own right.
