•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 3-10
Readily established from Yarrow seeds, Achillea Parker is an upright, clump-forming perennial which is noted for its deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, grayish-green foliage. It is also known for its tiny, long-lasting, bright golden flowers which appear in dense, flattened clusters that can measure up to 4 inches across. It sometimes is referred to as Fernleaf Yarrow. Yarrow flowers bloom throughout the summer and fall on stiff, erect stems reaching 36 - 48 inches in height. The Yarrow herb was important throughout the centuries as a medicinal herb. Many people grew the herb seeds for a plant that was useful in the treatment of wounds. Achillea Yarrow grows best in lean soils with dry to medium moisture that are well-drained. Yarrow plants like positions in full sun and protected from strong winds. Yarrow makes excellent cut flowers. They also dry well for crafts and dried flower arrangement. To dry Yarrow, hang it upside down in a dry, dark, well-ventilated place. The foliage retains it's somewhat spicy aroma even once it is dried.
Sow Yarrow seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before frost season ends. Use starter trays or small pots. Press the herb seeds into the soil but do not cover. Light aids germination, so sow shallowly. Keep Achillea seeds moist until germination. Or, after frost danger has passed, directly sow Yarrow flower seeds outdoors in prepared soil. Press seed into the soil and space 30 inches apart.
