Plant Care Tips
Achillea (Yarrow) is a great choice for any kind of garden, but shines in a water-wise garden. There are many varieties, from mat-forming to tall, clumping. All of them are very hardy, disease resistant. They tend to naturalize and can be rather enthusiastic spreaders if conditions are too ideal. Their preference is for average to poor, well-drained soils and for full sun exposure. You may have to stake the taller varieties to keep them from flopping. After the first blooming, cut back the stems to lateral buds to encourage reblooming. Once the blooming season is over, cut back the plant to the basal foliage. You can divide Yarrow in late winter or early spring. We recommend that you do this every couple of years, as division helps keep the plant under control.
