Plant of the Month: Achillea (Yarrow)

Plant of the Month: Achillea (Yarrow)

Yarrow is extremely easy to grow and requires little maintenance in order for it to thrive. The most important thing to know is that yarrow does not do well in wet soils, make sure you plant it in dry soil. Once established, yarrow is extremely drought tolerant, making it a great plant for use in low-maintenance, dry gardens. Although it needs some shade, it does best in full sun. In any less light than that, it will be more prone to flopping stems.

Although yarrow used to only be available in whites and creams, you can now find them in an array of colors, such as soft pinks, bright yellows, rich reds, and warm apricot. Drought resistant and colorful to make any garden pop!
