Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium Summer Berries Mix) - What a cheery mix for the summer border! Grow this mix from Yarrow seeds and enjoy colors of salmon, yellow, white, pink, cherry red, and cream. Yarrow Summer Berries is beautiful, drought resistant and long-lasting Yarrow, and it's splendid for fresh and dried arrangements plus long-lasting garden color that bees and butterflies love.
Throughout the centuries, Achillea herbs were useful for medical purposes. The herb seeds were grown for the plants' medicinal properties in the treatment of bleeding and wounds. Achillea Yarrow is a perennial, native to the United States and is happy to thrive in those infertile, untended garden spots. These Yarrow flowers bloom in just 4 months after being planted from Yarrow seeds, and they bloom through summer and fall especially if the spent flowers are deadheaded.
Sow Yarrow seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before frost season ends. Use starter trays or small pots. Press Yarrow flower seed into the soil but do not cover. Light aids germination. Keep Achillea Millefolium seeds moist until germination. After establishment, these plants are quite tolerant of drought and perfect for xeriscape gardening. You may also sow yarrow seeds directly outdoors after frost danger has passed in prepared soil or at least six weeks before frost season begins. Thin the Yarrow seedlings to 16 inches apart.
