How to Grow Achillea Perennial Flower Plants

Perennial, Achillea Millefolium

Achillea, also called Yarrow, are among the hardiest of perennials. Originating in Asia and Europe, Achillea are a common wildflower, that has become very popular in home gardens. Most common, are the bright, yellow flowers. Red and white blooms also exist. The small flowers are grown on strong stems, so they make fine cut flowers for vases and bouquets.

With a prominent bloom from summer to frost, they make a great addition to your home flowerbed.

Plant Propagation:

Achillea are grown from seed. Sow seeds directly seeded into your flower garden, or start indoors for transplanting later.  For outdoor starts, plant Achillea seeds after the soil has begun to warm in the spring.

Sow seeds early in the season and cover lightly with soil. Space seeds or seedlings 12-18" apart.

Once your plants have been established, they can be propagated by separation in the fall.

How to Grow Achillea Plants:

Growing Achillea flowers is easy. They prefer full sun and a well drained soil. They will do well in average soils and tolerate dry soil conditions. Water Achillea plants during dry periods, once or twice per week. Add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice a season.

In rich soil, Achillea will grow tall, 1-3 feet, and may require staking.

Once your Achillea are established, they will grow well and bloom until frost. Being very hardy, they will likely survive the first light frosts before going dormant for the winter. They do not require mulching or protection in the winter.

Insect and Disease:

Achillea are resistant to insects and disease. If insect or disease problems occur, treat early with organic or chemical insect repellents and fungicide.
