Although I have 4 or 5 varieties of Yarrow already, your article stimulated me to go searching for more, and I found an interesting one you didn't mention...A.sibirica var. camtschatica 'Love Parade'. Now I just have to figure out how I can squeeze in three more plants...

Another informative article Todd - thanks! Who'd have known there are some many types of yarrow? I especially like the newer red cultivars.


Cheers!

I love yarrow and would like to add more to my gardens. Don, I have 'Love Parade' and like it very much. What a nice plant it is. Thanks for the great article, Todd!

One of the most carefree plants in my garden. Another plus besides how well it does is that several species of butterflies flock to it.

From my experience, I enjoy 'Paprika' yarrow for it's lovely color and how well it looks in a mixed flower border. Yarrow compliments daylilies nicely. I have not found this variety to be invasive at all for me in Pennsylvania. My large golden yarrows make a statement that I like. Thanks for the article. JK

I had a lovely color of pink, the first year. Then each year since it has been white. I don't know what gives but I'm leaving it be. as it compliments my pond and it's many colorful lilies. I will have to look for some of the more colorful varieties for the other side of the pond.

Rand, I had a similar issue with Summer Pastels that I grew from seed. It started out with multicolored blooms, soft yellows and pinks, but in subsequent years the blooms were very faded, almost white. I'm sure Todd could say why...

Jo I was thinking that it may be the soil or something like that. or just reverting back to the wild. I don't know. But thanks, now I know I'm not the only one faced with that problem. I don't think of it as a "real" problem but rather a little let down.

I think they are like the fancy lupines...they will revert over time. Prompt deadheading to prevent self-seeding will help keep the parent plant pure.

Thanks for that advice, Todd. I will try and keep that in mind with my yarrows.

Thanks Todd; I will keep that in mind for the next one. I really though that this one keeps coming back from the root system but then I can't be sure either.

Great article! Makes me think about summer! I bought a whole bunch of Fiesta from Bluestone 3 years ago when they had them on sale because I had a hill to fill in and no water to water whatever I planted there. At first I hated them. Before the plants get mature they only had one or 2 blooms per plant and the beautiful magenta turned muddy brown. I thought is this what I have to look forward to every summer? Once they started to fill in and spread I had tons of flowers in varying stages of pink and I just deadhead the spent ones to keep the hill looking lively. The foliage is also a nice dark green which makes a nice contrast. Now I love the plant!
