What is yarrow?


Yarrow is a common perennial which is very easy to grow in a variety of climates. The original North American yarrow is smaller than most landscape cultivars and blooms with a delicate white flower in early spring. New cultivars have yellow, pink, or red blossoms. These plants grow up to 18 inches tall and bloom much later in the year than their wild cousins. By cutting the blooms, you can get two bloom cycles per season. All varieties of yarrow make wonderful dried flowers.
