Legend has it that Achilles used this plant to heal his soldiers’ wounds after battle. As a folk remedy, its leaves are prescribed to soothe abrasions and toothache. We find this sturdy, dependable plant the perfect remedy for many design situations. The broad, flat flower heads project horizontal elements, their colors blending with other perennials. Spicy smelling, fern-like foliage and strong straight stems add to overall attractiveness. Spreading and drought tolerant, Yarrow seems to thrive on neglect, can handle ocean spray and will bloom again in the fall if cut back in midsummer.
‘Pretty Belinda’ struts lovely flat-topped dense flower clusters in vibrant lilac and pink hues on steady straight stems. Finely incised feather-like foliage cloaks an aromatic tidy green foundation that is more compact, more upright and shorter than most millefolium cultivars. This long summer bloomer won’t need staking, entices butterflies and brings colorful good looks to Lavenders, Geum ‘Mango Lassi’ and Salvia ‘Sweet Esmeralda’.
