Yarrow

Carithers Flowers Design Favorite

The Yarrow, a hardy and aromatic herb, has been used for centuries by the people of North America, Asia, Europe and Australia. It is native to the northern hemisphere and is known as the “little feather” by those from New Mexico and southern Colorado because of the shape of its leaves. This flower is also known as old man’s pepper, devil’s nettle, nosebleed plant and thousand-seal. Yarrows were widely used prior to modern times to staunch blood. This perennial can grow up to three feet tall with a flower spread of about two feet.

The plant spreads by rhizomes and produces flattened flower clusters that come in a variety of colors. The leaves have varying degrees of hairiness and have come in groups of three to eight (for ray flowers) and fifteen to forty (for disk flowers). The Yarrow grows up to 3500 meters above sea level and commonly flowers between May and June. The Yarrow has been used as a poultice for skin problems. It also promotes better digestion and gives headache relief. Other uses include purifying the body of dangerous toxins, lowering blood pressure and can also work as a hemostatic. The plant is also good at destroying infections which makes it a very versatile flower.

Growing Recommendations – Yarrow

The Yarrow is one of the easiest plants to grow in the garden. What sets this flower apart from others is that it thrives in the hot, dry, sunny spot and will not stay strong if you try to grow it in a shaded location. Depending on the species this plant can be found in bloom from May until October. It should be planted between zones three and eight and remember that it does not like extremely humid climates. It should be planted from early to late spring. The best soil for this plant is well-drained and not too rich. Because of its deep roots, it is suggested that you should water it deeply on an occasional basis. However, keep in mind that the Yarrow will rot if the soil stay wet for periods of time. More likely than not, it will not bloom the first year unless started indoors in late fall or early winter.
