Achillea millefolium 'Apple Blossom'

Yarrow

One of the hardiest, least-demanding perennials for hot and dry locations, Achillea's flattish flower clusters bloom generously in many colors and provide excellent cut and dried flowers. Fire retardant and somewhat drought-tolerant once established they need full sun, but tolerate most soils with good drainage. Their gray-green leaves are aromatic. Do not over-water or over-fertilize, as plants grow weak stems that make poor dried flowers. Deadhead to encourage further bloom. Start from seed or division.
