Yarrow

'Strawberry Seduction' produces large clusters of luscious strawberry red flowers with gold centers.  A uniform blossom height results in the flowers being produced in a domed canopy atop a full, sturdy, upright clump of grey-green foliage.  After the red flowers are finished, when left to dry on the stems, they turn a lovely shade of buff yellow.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Yarrow is an easy care plant that grows best in full sun. It thrives in a wide range of soils but does best in well drained soil. Yarrow  will even grow in very poor dry soils with low fertility soil. Avoid fertilizing or overwatering or the plant can become  leggy and floppy.
