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.

Interesting Facts:

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.
