Description:
Achillea millefolium (White Yarrow) is a graceful perennial wildflower which produces an abundance of huge, flat clusters, 5 in. across and packed with 20-25 creamy-white flowers. They are borne on tall stems atop a pleasantly aromatic, green, fern-like foliage that is disease resistant. This cheerful herb is not only a valuable medicinal herb and an amazing pollinator plant that is sure to brighten up your garden, but it is also a potential source for a nutrient-rich mulch. Here at Southern, we love multi-use plants and it is really, really difficult to beat the impact that this one plant can make on your entire garden.

Medicinal Properties:
Yarrow is a well-known diaphoretic herb which has long been used to reduce fevers and clear up congestion colds, flu, and other upper respiratory infections. It is also an excellent herb for cleansing programs, for which 2-3 dropperfuls of the tincture are added to hot water or cleansing teas and used in conjunction with saunas and sweating therapy. When used cold, the herb has the ability to clear heat and toxins, especially nitrogenous waste products from the body through the urine. As a bitter tonic, it is used for lack of appetite, general debility, and convalescence.


Planting Instructions:
Sow Yarrow seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before frost season ends. Use starter trays or small pots. Press the herb seeds into the soil but do not cover. Light aids germination, so sow shallowly. Keep Achillea seeds moist until germination. Or, after frost danger has passed, directly sow Yarrow flower seeds outdoors in prepared soil. Press seed into the soil and space 30 inches apart.

Light Required: Full sun
Watering: Keep moist
