Site Selection
Select a site with full sun and very well-drained soil. Yarrow thrives in hot, dry conditions and low soil fertility, but won’t tolerate wet soils.

Planting Instructions
Plant in spring, spacing plants 1 to 2 feet apart, depending on the variety. Prepare the garden bed by using a garden fork or tiller to loosen the soil to a depth of 12 to 15 inches, then mix in a 2- to 4-inch layer of compost. Dig a hole twice the diameter of the pot the plant is in. Carefully remove the plant from its container and place it in the hole so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Carefully fill in around the root ball and firm the soil gently. Water thoroughly.

Care
Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch to retain moisture and control weeds. Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week. After the first killing frost, cut stems back to an inch or two above soil line. Divide plants every 3 to 4 years as new growth begins in the spring, lifting plants and dividing them into clumps.

Companion Plants
Daylily – The spiky leaves of daylily provide a dramatic contrast to the ferny foliage of yarrow. Both are tough plants for hot, sunny locations.
Penstemon – Like yarrow, penstemon performs best in well-drained soil in a sunny location. The long spires of tubular beard tongue flowers pair nicely with the mounded form of yarrow.
Salvia – The deep blue and purple blooms of perennial salvia look great with gold, yellow, pink or apricot-colored yarrows.
