1. Nice to be visiting your blog again, it has been months for me. Well this article that i’ve been waited for so long. I need this article to complete my assignment in the college, and it has same topic with your article. Thanks, great share.

  2. Mom used to grow it and it’s how I got started with growing it in my flower beds and I never knew what the benefits were. I plan to grow more of it.

  3. I just split my Yarrow a couple weeks ago. Hope it does ok – I love this perennial. Happy to say that here in Michigan’s thumb I have not had the problem of so many others of it taking over. I was surprised to read that as that has not been my experience at all. I had two large “clumps” in my front garden and it never spread.

  4. My experience is with yellow narrow here in Michigan. Yes, it will spread on runners, but I live in the country and have lots of room for it! I will never go without it and transplant from home to home. Even sent to my niece in Texas. I’ve personally made a poultice of the leaves and tied it to areas with gapping holes from Brown recluse spider bites. Heals better than anything a doctor can treat you with!

  5. I dug up a couple pieces that have survived my horses, but didn’t know what it was. Seems it’s a white yarrow. It’s been in the same spot for several years and wasn’t sure it would take being potted, but it’s doing just fine.

  6. According to the books I have on herbs, only the white or pink ones should be used internally. Can you point me to the resources where the yellow ones are used internally?

  7. When making yarrow tea, do you just use the leaves or the flowers, too.

  8. Thank you for the info on yarrow. I love to see yellow flowers. I will certainly look for it at the nursery. It looks so pretty in your garden.

  9. Very interesting…never knew this about this plant. As to a rash…heh, I am even allergic to lettuce (among a great lot of other stuff) and a couple of my kin are allergic to rice…we can find ourselves allergic to absolutely anything!!

  10. I find it somewhat comical that in Oklahoma yarrow is cultivated as a perennial while in Alberta Canada it is almost bordering on being a noxious weed. It grows in our ditches and once it is introduced into a flower bed, it is there for life, we can’t get rid of it. It even invades our lawns. I now have it in my flower beds, it got in when I planted a package of wild flowers.

    1. I have it for years growing in my beds and never had a problem with it getting outside of them and in the yard.

  11. Please also advise your readers that you can get a serious rash from yarrow. My skin blistered after I planted three blooming clumps in my yard. I had to have my husband remove them. My dermatologist told me that it is not uncommon to be allergic to yarrow. I love your little piece of paradise. You definitely have a green thumb and are blessed.

    1. I just added a note at the bottom of this post about your rash and some people’s susceptibility to it.

  12. I’ve only planted yarrow once, on the recommendation of my MIL. She said it grew with little care and came up every year. I did take her advice and bought it in several of the colors it was available in. However, be warned! It will come up everywhere through the runners it establishes and its seeds in the fall. Before long, it was everywhere and it was choking out all my other plants. My MIL discovered the same thing by the 3rd and 4th year of her planting in her garden. Yarrow is probably best suited for growing in a large containers where the runners can be contained or on very large properties where you will better enjoy large swathes of it. It is an easy care plant in that it defies the hot summer heat and requires no watering other than to get it started upon initial planting. Small garden people need to be aware since it will even begin to choke out grassy lawn areas.

    1. Good to know. I planted Ivy, big mistake. Now I am trying to get rid of liriope. It was all good when the landscaper recommended it and planted a little clump. You really have to do your homework. Have a good weekend!

    1. Thank you very much for that information I had no idea
