A Bit More

Few perennials are as satisfyingly carefree as the Yarrows. They barely require any water once established and maintenance consists of cutting off the occasional spent blossom. The abundant dusty red flowers with yellow centers are borne in flat-topped corrycombs on 1.5-2’ stalks. These are most attractive in the summer garden from June to September or cut for arrangements that can last in the home for months. The gray-green aromatic foliage makes a lovely contrast with deeper greens in the landscape. Achillea millefolium spreads by means of underground rhizomes. If divided regularly it will not exceed a 18-24” spread. It is native to Europe and western Asia and enjoys full sun, well-draining soil and little to moderate water once established. Hummingbirds and butterflies find the blossoms irresistible but happily deer and rabbits find it less than tasty.
