Native Achillea millefolium makes an interesting and long-blooming addition to a pollinator garden. Desert Eve™ Rose Yarrow (Achillea millefolium ‘Desderos’) features large umbels of deep rosy red flowers highlighted by golden yellow stamens. This is one plant that can take heat, wind, and dryness while remaining fresh and vibrant with almost no upkeep or extra maintenance.  

Yarrow is great for those hard-to-plant spots in the garden that are extra sunny or have poor soil. Allow Yarrow to spread and fill empty spaces as a low-maintenance ground cover, or use it as an accent for a mixed seasonal container. Desert Eve™ Yarrow has incredible disease and pest resistance. Neither deer nor rabbits tend to bother this herb. Slugs and snails may take advantage of fresh shoots in the early spring, although they are rarely a problem once the plant has reached full height. 

Desert Eve™ Rose Yarrow Care

Choose a location in the garden with full sun (at least 6 hours, but preferably more), and well-draining, average soil. Very rich soils may encourage foliage growth over flowers and should be avoided. Heavy fertilizing should also be avoided. Mulch lightly to suppress weeds, pulling the material away from the base of the plant. Water newly planted yarrow every 3-5 days until the plants are established and visibly putting on more top growth. When the plants mature, supplemental watering is generally only required during extended periods of drought. 

Pinching is not required for Desert Eve™ Yarrow plants. They naturally develop dense branching, with sturdy upright stems. Cut back spent growth late in the fall or early in the spring as new growth emerges. Divide clumps of yarrow every 3-4 years or as needed to encourage vigorous growth. Transplanted yarrow clumps will need a season or two to fully establish and become as drought tolerant as the parent plant. 

Desert Eve™ Rose Yarrow Spacing

The overall height and spread for Desert Eve™ Rose Yarrow is a compact 14-18 inches, making it easy to fit into small gardens. Space plants 12 inches apart, center on center, for a dense ground cover effect. Container-grown yarrow needs at least an 8-inch diameter for a single plant.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
