Description
Yarrow is tough and reliable, thriving on light sandy soils and coping well with coastal conditions. This particular variety combines an inspiring mix of pastel shades that creates a wonderful tapestry of summer colour. The aromatic foliage and wide, flat flower heads of Achillea millefolium 'Summer Pastels' are perfect for prairie planting schemes and cottage gardens, associating particularly well with swaying grasses. This resilient hardy perennial is well loved by pollinating insects and makes a lovely, informal cut flower too. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Culinary note: The leaves of the yarrow can be used cooked or raw. They have a bitter flavour but are good in mixed salads and best used when young. They may also be used as a preservative or flavouring for beer. The flowers and leaves can be made into an aromatic tea. click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant out Achillea plants into any well-drained soil in full sun. Achillea plants dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting.
More Info
Once established, Yarrow is reasonably drought tolerant and requires little maintenance. In summer, stake the tall flower stems with garden canes to prevent them drooping and leave faded flower heads intact at the end of summer to enjoy an attractive autumn seed head display. When the first frosts blacken the stems, cut them down to ground level. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of yarrow in spring. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
