12" to 36"
average to rich, well-drained soil; adaptable to poor conditions
summer to fall
a variety of colors (pink, yellow and white) in a variety of shapes (flat-umbel, button or daisy)
green feathery foliage
seeds and division
beds, borders, cut flowers, slopes and hot and airy dry sites
Start with purchased plants or sow seeds indoors in early winter if you want plants to flower the first year. Deadhead flowers to prolong blooming period and divide them every 3 to 5 years in the spring or fall if they get crowded.
Cut flowers will last longer if Yarrows are picked when about half the buds in the clusters have opened. Add them to a vase with 2 to 3 inches of water in the bottom. If you plan on drying them, don't replace the water in the vase once it's gone-the flower will dry right in the vase.
