Why have just one Yarrow plant when you can have three? The Desert Eve™ Yarrow collection is a sunset in a pot. Achillea millifolium Desert Eve™ Red, Rose, and Yellow bloom nonstop until late fall and attract pollinators by the masses. The clump-forming foliage grows and spreads quickly, allowing you to fill in naturalized areas and create meadows in one to two growing seasons. The flowers are not bothered by heat, humidity, or salty winds at the seaside and are the definition of low maintenance.  

Yarrow is naturally disease and pest resistant. Deer rarely browse on even the most tender early shoots. Desert Eve™ Yarrow has extraordinary drought tolerance after fully establishing and is truly a plant-it-and-forget-it perennial. The compact tufts of foliage remain semi-evergreen in the warmer growing zones, but go dormant in USDA zones 2-7 during the winter. The fragrant foliage and flowers make a great addition to seasonal fresh or dried flower arrangements. Yarrow is at home both in meadow plantings or more structured cottage gardens, where the textures of the leaves and flowers provide contrast against larger and more blousy plants. 

Desert Eve™ Yarrow Collection Care

Yarrow grows the best in soil on the dry side and as much sun as possible. Yarrow in partly shaded locations will thrive if the soil is very well drained and irrigation is kept to a minimum. Sandy, nutrient-deficient soils are well tolerated. Water plants sparingly but consistently for the first growing season or two until well established. As plants mature, they only require supplemental watering during long periods of drought or heat. Fertilizing is rarely required, although a 2-3 inch layer of organic compost can help to cool the root zone during the summer months. 

No pruning or deadheading is needed for Desert Eve™ Yarrow. The flowers are generally self-cleaning and the overall shape of the plant remains compact all growing season. Remove spent top growth in the spring just as the new shoots are emerging. Spring cleanup instead of fall cleanup allows for beneficial insects to use the flowerheads and foliage as cover through the winter months. It also helps to mark the plants, so that they are not disturbed or accidentally removed during winter weeding sessions. 

Desert Eve™ Yarrow Collection Spacing

The overall height and spread for Desert Eve™ Yarrow is a tidy and compact 18 inches. Space plants 18 inches from each other or other established perennials. Container-grown plants will tolerate closer spacing. You can grow all three plants together in a pot with at least a 16-inch diameter.

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.
