Obviously we hit the clearance sale at just the right time!
There stood a wheeled cart with shelves of Pretty Belinda
looking like it has seen better days.
During a quick trip to the hardware store, we bought two
one gallon pots (regularly $7.98, marked down to fifty cents).
The next day we had to make a second trip and found the
same Yarrow now on sale for a quarter. Needless to say we
bought 19 more of them for an updated grand total of
$5.75. We yanked them out of their pots, chopped off the
dying foliage and watered them well. I could tell these plants
were tough because even though they were rootbound, dry
and beaten, they were still blooming on broken and bent
This stuff is so durable. There are new shoots forming from
the very pot bound plastic tubs they were in, but doing very
well. Toss them in a hole and water well.
Next year I hope to post a pic of the $167.58 worth of
Yarrow I planted for less than six bucks.

I have had this plant for years. When I moved from North Carolina to South Carolina on the coast, I transplanted my yarrow. It loves, loves, loves it here. It gives me flowers practically year round. If you want to use it as a cut flower, it can last for up to two weeks in water.
It does spread, but in a good way. Anyone that I have given this plant to, also loves it. It is very easy to control it, if you want to keep it contained. You can easily dig up some, and plant it somewhere else, or give it to someone. This is a very hardy plant, and I would say fool proof.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Grovertown, Indiana Rossville, Indiana Urbandale, Iowa Pinconning, Michigan Walnut Grove, Missouri Amherst, New Hampshire Bayshore, North Carolina Garner, North Carolina Hulbert, Oklahoma Pawleys Island, South Carolina Disputanta, Virginia
