•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 1-12
As a member of the aster family in the genus Achillea, Yarrow Red is a hardy perennial with a compact growth habit. A native to North America, Achillea Millefolium Rubra, commonly known as Yarrow Red, can be easily germinated without any special treatment; it features fern-like foliage and produces clusters of fragrant small, reddish-pink flowers. All summer long, red yarrow blooms attracting butterflies and bees. A colorful yarrow variety, Yarrow Red is perfect for borders, containers, and large pots and looks exceptional when mixed with other yarrows or flowers. In addition to thriving in heat, cold, low soil fertility, and drought, Achillea Millefolium Rubra seeds can be sown in the fall for an early bloom. Yarrow also has a long medicinal history.
Direct sow red yarrow seeds in fall or early spring; fall planted seed will remain dormant until spring. To start the seeds indoors, plant Achillea Millefolium Rubra seeds just below the surface of the soil since they need light to germinate. Keep the soil temperature at 65-75 degrees F, but out of the hottest rays of sunlight. While the young plants should be watered to help them establish a deep root system, too much watering of mature plants can cause stem and root rot or mildew. This species grows best in sandy or well drained soil, and tolerates drought conditions. Since yarrow tends to flop over in fertile soil or shade, staking may be needed; this also protects the plant's fragile stems in high winds. Deadhead the wilted blossoms often for continued blooming. After the plant has finished blooming, cut the plant down to its lower leaves for healthy spring growth.
