DescriptionCompact Plants with Continuous Blooms
Fuss-free, flat-top flowers keep coming all summer
A natural choice for borders and containers, Rainbow Yarrow grows quickly and to a perfectly manageable height. Its tight bundles of small florets create a seamless surface of colour that butterflies and other beneficial pollinators can't resist—and the blooms keep coming till early fall! Yarrow also makes an excellent cut flower and is a musthave for decorative wreaths and dried arrangements. Remove spent flowers throughout the growing season to ensure the most repeat blooms possible.
More magic below the blooms...
Yarrow is drought and heat tolerant and adaptable to nearly any soil. Its finely divided, fernlike foliage is attractive to humans, but not palatable to most planteating pests. Revered by permaculture gardeners, yarrow fits right in to a selfsustaining ecosystem. Its deep roots are able to mine the soil below for minerals and then store them for a "rainy day." This means that after each growing season, instead of yard waste, you'll be left with nutrient-rich plant material that can be added to the compost bin or chopped up for natural mulch.
Look down for this rainbow
Producing clusters of colourful flowers in nearly any soil condition, easy-care yarrow (Achillea) is well known to most avid gardeners. But many are only familiar with traditional yarrow varieties that typically grow to heights of 4–5'. Breck's new Rainbow Yarrow Collection has all the benefits of conventional yarrow, but with a lower profile of only 20" tall!
The plant, the myth, the legend…
Achillea, or yarrow, has an ancient reputation as a healing herb. In fact, stories of its medicinal uses go back as far as Greek mythology. According to legend, the plant was named for the Trojan War hero Achilles, who was said to have used the herb to heal his soldiers' wounds. Since then, yarrow has been employed throughout the centuries as a medicinal plant in Western Europe, Asia and America. Its countless uses include treating colds, fevers, eczema, asthma and anxiety.
