Achillea millefolium 'White' Yarrow



A long blooming perennial with flat heads of tiny white flowers above feathery almost fern-like foliage. Butterflies and bees love to drink its nectar and it is a host plant for many moths and beetles. There is some debate about the nativity of this species. Many sources agree that it is native across the Northern hemisphere, but most Achillea millefolium found in North America has hybridized with the Eurasian varieties. 

A delicate looking but tough adaptable plant that spreads aggressively by rhizomes. It has been used medicinally for a variety of ailments.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
