Drought tolerant hardy perennial flower. Fine, feathery foliage resembles a fern. The feathery green foliage is very aromatic and also dry nicely.
Harvest yarrow when the flower clusters show good color but before they start to turn brown. Hang the flowers in bunches upside down to dry. Flowers are in clusters forming a flat white top usually affixed to a single stem. Yarrow can endure dry, impoverished soil and survive with little maintenance.
Once considered an important medicinal herb, yarrow is now used primarily as ornamental. The colorful flower heads look beautiful in the garden and last really well in fresh and dried floral arrangements.
Germination takes place around a week or so. Be sure to have good drainage. (add sand if soil is clay). I mix the tiny seeds with sterile sand and distribute over my garden area. Do not let the seeds dry out, nor should you drown them. Just keep moist-you can add a thin top layer of vermiculite to keep them from blowing away.
