Yarrow Flowers Seeds - White (Achillea Millefolium) Perennial Wildflower
White Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium) - White Yarrow is seen growing in all regions of the United States. It grows very easily from Yarrow seeds, and it also spreads by underground roots. It is used in the flower garden or in natural settings. Wild Yarrow looks lovely in meadows, but care must be given so that it doesn't dominate and crowd out other wildflowers. Yarrow has attractive, fragrant, finely divided fern-like leaves and large flat-topped dusty white flower clusters. The Yarrow herb plant was also widely used as a medicinal herb. The Yarrow herb seeds were often grown to produce plants that were useful in the cure of wounds, and Yarrow was used on the battlefields to treat wounded soldiers.
White Yarrow wildflower seeds should be planted in full sun and the Yarrow plants are tolerant to hot, humid summers. Yarrow can tolerate poor soil conditions, and does best in lean, dry to medium wet, well-drained soil. Avoid heavy clays and moist, rich, fertile soils. Remove faded flowers to encourage more growth, and divide Yarrow plants every 2 - 3 years.
After frost danger has passed, directly sow Yarrow seeds outdoors in prepared soil. Press the white Yarrow wildflower seeds into the soil. Thin Yarrow seedlings to 16 inches apart.
