This seed strain offers a diverse color range, running from red and pink through apricot, chrome yellow, pale yellow, cream, beige, and even a few pure whites. Plants are upright and sturdy, and bloom starts for us in early summer, persists into September. Lacy foliage of a cool green sets off this long-running display that can carry a border through the summer on its own. Also a fine match with Malva, Alcea, and a wide range of Daisies. A superb cut or dried flower and very hardy, to boot.
These valuable garden plants from the North Temperate Zone are widely grown for the masses of flowers they bear throughout much of the summer. Their flattened flower heads introduce a fresh shape into the perennial border. Yarrows thrive in full sun and well-drained soil, and are drought tolerant. They flower from June to September. The best new varieties bloom longer and harder than their predecessors, making a good genus even more valuable. Yarrows also make excellent cut flowers for both fresh and dried arrangements.
