Pearl Yarrow (Achillea Ptarmica Pearl) - Pearl 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. Pearl 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. Also grow from Yarrow seeds, this perennial looks different than other Yarrow varieties. Known as Pearl Yarrow, Sneezewort Yarrow or simply Sneezewort, this plant features pure white 3/4 inch double pompom blooms that rise above shiny green foliage.

Pearl Yarrow seeds should be planted in full sun as 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 Pearl Yarrow seeds into the soil. Thin Yarrow seedlings to 16 inches apart.
