Yarrow Cloth of Gold Seeds
Info: Yarrow Cloth of Gold has large golden-yellow, highly luminous inflorescences that reach up to 1 metre in height. They form a beautiful contrast to the silver-grey, feathered, fragrant foliage. The flowers are especially well suited for perennial beds and natural gardens and can also be used as cut flowers and dried flowers. They are also a pasture for bees and insects.
Sowing & care: Sowing from March in pre-culture or from May directly outdoors. Only press the seeds lightly on. Later plant out at a distance of 40 - 60 cm. Yarrow needs a fresh, permeable soil rich in humus and nutrients and a sunny location. If the faded inflorescences are regularly removed, it will flower a second time. In autumn to late autumn the shrub is pruned up to 20 cm above the ground. If the perennials become too large, they can be propagated by division.
