Blooms June through September featuring 2–3" flat-topped flowerheads. Ferny green foliage is aromatic when crushed. Excellent filler for fresh and dried arrangements. Prompt removal of faded flowerheads guarantees a long season of blooms. Colors can fade out in extreme humidity but regular cutting will keep the blooms looking bright and fresh. It’s a sweet and easy early morning task to walk the yarrow path and cut quick bouquets. Plant 12–24" apart in well-drained soil, full sun to part shade.

Herbaceous Perennial Plants
When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be planted or potted up soon, wet the roots. If you do not plant or pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.
Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
Pot up rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6" pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers. Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°. Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
