The Common Yarrow is an easy-care perennial, which bees and other pollinators love to visit.
Growing from a deep bed of lovely feathery leaves, its tall flower stems showcase flat-topped flower heads will grow to 5 inches across and will keep their colour in your garden for weeks.
This is a carefree plant that needs minimal upkeep.
Stake early in the season to prevent the flowers from flopping over, and deadhead regularly to keep the blooms coming. You will also want to divide the plant every 4 to 5 years.
