Yarrow, Official (Achillea millefolium) seeds, organic

(2 customer reviews)


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.

    I bought these and they germinated great and the plants were beautiful. I am in the central Oregon coast.

    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.
