Sunlight: Full sun
Soil: well-drained soil
- Divide yarrow plants every 3 to 5 years.
- Lift the clumps of flowers in early spring or fall and remove any dead stems from the center of the clump.
- You can replant the divisions in well-prepared soil.
Cottage gardens, wild gardens, meadows, prairies and naturalized areas. Good fresh cut or dried flower.
- This species is generally considered to be too weedy for borders.
- Can be used as a flowering ground cover or lawn for sunny out-of-the-way areas (mow as needed with rotary mower on high setting).
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
Stem rot, powdery mildew and rust are occasional disease problems. Plant stems are weak and lodge easily. If grown ornamentally, plants can develop into a tangled mass of stems and foliage by mid to late summer if not cut back. Strong summer rain storms with high winds can easily flatten exposed plantings. May spread somewhat aggressively.
