Undergoing MyBlogLog Verification

Tuesday, July 28, 2009


Propagating Achillea or Yarrow is one of the easiest plants to divide either in the spring or fall. It spreads by rhizomes. It prefers hot dry and sunny locations and too much fertilizer will make it leggy and reaches a height of 18"-24". It blooms from May to frost and colors can vary from yellow, white, pink and red. It is one of the perennials when dried that will retain its true color. It blooms are fragrant and butterflies enjoy their nectar and deer do not. Deadhead spent blooms for more color and Yarrow is native to Europe and Asia.
