Yarrow Plant

Yarrow Plant - Achillea millefolium. A perennial plant native to North America, Europe and western Asia that can service both a flower garden and an herb garden in zones 3 through 9. It takes care of itself and requires no special attention to thrive. It grows 2 to 3 feet tall and has a spread of 2 to 3 feet, so plants should be spaced 12-24 inches apart to provide enough room between. Yarrow blooms from June to September and prefers full sun with a medium to dry moisture level. They are hardy and can tolerate droughts and heat but may not bloom at their best. The white flowers attract butterflies and pollinators and grow in a dense cluster that can be four inches wide. The leaves have a spicy fragrance that lingers even after cutting. Also known as bloodwort, woundwort, milfoil, and thousand leaves, yarrow can be propagated by dividing rhizomes, although it also self-seeds. They are especially well adapted to grow in abandoned fields, roadsides, vacant lots, and naturalized lawns. Since the plant can grow quite tall and may flop over, the stems can be pruned late in the spring before flowering to tame vertical growth. After the first flowering, the spent buds can be pruned to encourage another healthy bloom.

Yarrow plants are planted in the spring and summer, and butterflies are attracted to these beautiful herbal plants. They are in the perennial family and grow tiny flowers in different colors. The flowers grow in shades of golds to yellows, warm pinks, whites, eye-catching reds, and oranges. The yarrow plants even grow in two-tone with a mixture of red with a touch of yellow in the middle of the flowers. They are gorgeous with many benefits. Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is an herbal plant that provides nutrients in the soil for fruit trees and gardens. The herbs in yarrow can be brewed into a tea to reduce fever and heal rashes, bee stings, and another first-aid ailment. This plant will look stunning as it begins to bloom and will work great for arrangements to bring indoors to add some color.
