Summer Berries Yarrow Seeds



Refuses to fade, even in extreme heat

The most beautiful and long-lasting yarrow yet, Summer Berries is a cheery blend of magnificent colors on super-easy plants that thrive in any sunny spot—especially poor, dry soils that most perennials hate! For splendid fresh and dried arrangements plus long-lasting garden color that bees and butterflies love, grow plenty of Summer Berries!

The upright, bushy plant quickly reaches 2 feet high and 1½ feet wide, covering itself with a colorful canopy of flowers! Unlike most other Achilleas, the blooms on Summer Berries refuse to fade, even in punishing heat and sunlight. They keep their colors fresh for months when dried—and what gorgeous colors they are!

This mix includes salmon-apricot/yellow, cherry-red/apricot, white picotee pink/cream, two-tone pink, and many more—all borne in big 3- to 5-inch clusters just begging to be picked!

Yarrow is a perennial, native to the U.S. and happy to thrive in those infertile, untended garden spots we all know and dislike so much. Hardy from zones 3-10, it blooms in just 4 months from seed, and if you get an early start and cut the blooms promptly, it will probably rebloom before it's done for the season. The usual bloom season is June through September, though it may vary a bit depending on your climate. Just about the only thing you can do wrong is give this sun-lover any shade or too much fertilizer—it flowers best in poor soils.

A good companion to coneflower, celosia, butterfly flower, and just about any other sun-lover you can name, Summer Berries can be direct-sown or begun indoors in late winter. Space the plants about a foot apart in the garden if growing as perennials, closer together as annuals. (yarrow is so easy to grow that many folks just harvest the whole plant for cutflowers each year!) If you want more flowers quickly, cut back the old ones promptly. Easy, carefree, and so beautiful, this is a "must grow" for every sunny garden!
