(1 customer review)

$3.95$44.10

Family: Aster  (Asteraceae)

Hardy to zones to  4 to 8

(Official Yarrow; Oregon Mountain Yarrow; White Flowered Yarrow)  Creeping herbaceous perennial. Native to temperate zones worldwide, and often found in alpine meadows. Traditional usage (TWM): vulnerary, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and styptic. Plant prefers standard garden soil or poor soil, full sun and requires little water.  Sow in flat or direct seed. Germ. in about 8 days in warm soils. Grows vigorously in any kind of soil. Prefers full sun and requires very little water. You know, a lot of people plant roman chamomile for lawns, but if an even more unusual  lawn is desired, yarrow is a great choice!  It spreads joyfully, makes a very cushy carpet, dissuades other plants from interloping, and may be mowed back as easily, or more easily, than chamomile.  Space plants 18 inches apart.

    Charles

    Hi, wondering if there’s any difference in medicinal quality between the official and wild yarrow? Also, which yarrow comes in the Essential Medicinals collection?
    Thanks:)

      Hi Charles, These are medicinally interchangeable and of similar potency. With yarrow, really, you can increase essential oil content by reducing water and increasing sun, so medicinality isn’t necessarily a function of genetics. Essential medicinals is 100% organically grown so its the domesticated seed we’re offering there. richo

    These plants practically raised themselves!

    This season was my first attempt at propagation and the results were mixed. When I planted the three “sad” seedlings in the ground, I crossed my fingers and said a pray. They really took off! They have grown so well and ended up being quite close together. Since they are still going strong, I’m assuming that they must not mind being in close proximity. These were planted in an area that included a sprinkling of seeds from a flower seed mix and that section of the garden was so “busy” with pollinators – it was so nice to watch the activity all summer and into the fall season. I’m wondering about transplanting a plant or two to another part of the garden this fall. Would that be a wise choice or should I wait for the spring to do that?

    Just wanted to add that I didn’t used the right growing medium initially which I think explains my lackluster results with starting the seeds indoors.

    Question

    Katey (verified owner)

    Hi, I planted my yarrow seeds in 128 cell speedling trays. 100% germination and some even ”migrated” to other cells and sprouted! Is it necessary to thin the sprouts so I only have one plant per cell?
    Thanks!

      Hello Katey,
      Yes, Yarrow is very dependable and easy and seeds have a way of migrating as you say. This is very good for the plants. As for thinning, it is not entirely necessary with this species, which tends to be happy when crowded. Richo
