  • Description

  • Notes

This perennial is a treat for those who like cut flowers to grace their table grows 18" to 24" tall, and 24" wide. It can tolerate poor, dry soil and full sun to part shade. The pretty pink flowers bloom in summer and sit on top of fern-like foliage. Yarrows propagate easily from rooted cuttings or divisions, which should be performed in the early spring or fall. Following bloom, one should dead head the plant and divide the clumps when it appears crowded.
Planting Instructions: 1. Dig a hole 2 times the width and 1 and 1/2 times the height of the container. 2. Set rootball at ground level. 3. Prepare soil mix of equal parts soil and soil amendment. 4. Backfill with amended soil. 5. Build basin and water.
