Yarrow: A Field Guide

Yarrow is your secret weapon in a perennials garden: it requires little water or maintenance and will bloom all summer if you keep deadheading it.

With hundreds of varieties that bloom mostly in shades of yellow, white, pink, salmon, Achillea is most comfortable in a meadow garden, but also helpful in cottage and seaside gardens. With its flat-top flowers, yarrow is a natural landing pad for pollinators such as butterflies and bees.

Another plus is Achillea’s feathery foliage, usually a soft gray-green color, a pleasant backdrop for almost any color flower in a garden bed.
