This sunloving perennial doesn’t fade when the weather turns hot and dry. The feathery foliage and colorful flower clusters never miss a beat.

Yarrow (Achillea spp.) is a hardy, drought-tolerant perennial grown for its bright, flat-topped flowerheads and attractive ferny foliage. Although white and yellow are the most common colors, there are cultivars with red, reddish orange, and pink flowers. The white-flowered common yarrow (Achillea millefolium) can grow aggressively, so it’s best used in a meadow or on a slope, where it can fill in quickly. Brightly colored yarrow cultivars, such as ‘Moonshine’, ‘Coronation Gold’, and ‘Paprika’, are not as aggressive.

Good companions include: salvia, veronica, catmint, daisies, rudbeckia, and daylilies.

Growing Yarrow

Yarrow is easy to grow in sunlight. It takes average to sandy soil and tolerates drought. Overly wet soil can cause root rot. And humid weather can invite unsightly foliar diseases such as powdery mildew. Some yarrows require staking. Plants will flower more if deadheaded regularly. If plants become crowded after three or four years, divide them in early spring and replant.
