Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Although not fussy, if the soil is heavy clay/on the wet side it will help to introduce some grit to improve drainage. Most Achillea prefer conditions to be on the dry side with a good amount of sun. Suggested planting locations and garden types; Wildflower meadow, Wildlife Gardens, Prairie Planting, Cottage & Informal Garden.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Easily divided by digging up and pulling off rooted plantlets. The millefolium and ptarmica varieties spread by underground stems. Plants can be raised from seed but they won't be like their parents and we have found that plants from commercial seed are all different heights and usually very floppy.
