Description

The fantastic thing about yarrows is that they flower for many months at a stretch. These open the colour of terracotta, fading like a lovely antique tapestry as they age.

Care Tips

Cut back after first flowering to encourage a second flush in late summer. Divide plants every 3 years to rejuvenate.
