Let this adaptable and resilient perennial fill in around the base of taller perennials and flowering shrubs as an unforgettable groundcover and garden filler! A lacy fringe of Yarrow along the front of a garden bed as edging or along a sunny pathway will become your favorite place to stroll!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Yarrow can tolerate poor soil conditions, and do best in hot humid summers, in a full sun spot with excellent drainage. Water them regularly to get their roots established in your soil during their first season. After that, this rugged herbaceous perennial shows drought tolerance, although you'll want to give water in extended droughts. Deep waterings are better than frequent surface waterings, encouraging the roots to delve deep into the ground for moisture, and making them more resilient in the long run.

Top-dress with a 3-4 inch deep layer of arborist mulch to not only make them look better but also hold moisture and insulate the roots best. Once established, allow your Yarrow to dry between waterings for best success because they despise soggy soil.

Deadheading enhances their overall appearance and encourages rebloom. In spring, before you see new growth, trim away any of last year's stems to clean up the crown. Divide the mounds every 3-4 years.
