Tips On Growing Achillea (Yarrow)
Achillea (Yarrow) are long-blooming, Old World perennials that are exceptionally easy-to-grow and provide ample nectar for butterflies. They are resistant to browsing rabbits and deer. Most are tall, upright growers with the exception of evergreen Achillea ageratifolia (Greek yarrow) and Achillea millifolium
‘Sonoma Coast,' which are groundcovers.

Comments about High Country Gardens Achillea ageratifolia:
The failure of the Achillea was due to my thinking of the many tough Achilleas we use every day. This tiny plant needs tender loving care, a more humid environment (not Mediterranean) and plenty of water.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Survived East OR dry summer
from East Oregon
About Me Avid Gardener
Addition to our permaculture edible yard with hopes of attracting more pollinators. It did not grow much this first year but with my yarrow experience in the past I assume it will spread next year. Nice and low in front of the row of lavender.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

An excellent plant!
We bought some of the Greek Yarrow several years ago to edge an area that included lavenders & penstemons.. They are still are still growing strong & they have been divided a few times to use as edging in difficult areas, like along the sidewalk & drive way. We have bought a few new ones, too. They are our most dependable plant! They look good with or without the white flowers. They make "hell strips" look nicer & blend well with other plants & herbs. And they require very little care; a little water at the driest times. and a "haircut" when the flowers are done & turn brown. They have been our favorite discovery in your catalogs. Thanks!

Not in Love
from Central Nevada
Planted as a border against rock beds surrounding a garden. Have planted over three years and even the earliest planted have not spread or grown hardly at all, and we have irrigated during the summer, thinking the plants needed to get established. I think the deer are eating it. The plants we put in last year under protection have done better. But these are supposed to be deer resistant! This is a pretty plant but it is just not performing the way I had anticipated. Oh - we are at 6200 feet.
Merchant response: Good Day Deedee,We are so sorry to hear that your Achillea has been eaten by deer! Sadly, there is no plant that is truly deer proof as deer tend to eat just about anything when they are hungry and desperate even if it is poisonous! It is good to use a repellent during the first two years to ensure that if the deer take a taste, the plant should bounce back. Please know that we would never want you to pay for something you never got a chance to enjoy! It is because of this, we fully guarantee all of our products up to a year from the day your order has shipped.

from Parker, CO
I really love this plant and would have given it a 5 star review, but it has not been rabbit resistant, like the specs say it is. The foliage is pretty and compact, and works great at a border plant. However, every time it tries to flower, the rabbits eat the buds off immediately. Now, I do have to say that we have hundreds of rabbits in my neighborhood. Maybe it would be rabbit resistant somewhere that isn't so over populated with the furry devils. The evil monsters even decimated a couple of my agastaches last year. =(
Still to be decided
from Oceanside, CA
I planted 8 of these, after about 5months, 6 survived. Very slow growing, very flat, only a 2" tall, unlike picture. I live in southerna california about 1/2 mile from coast. Not sure if salt air has something to do with it.I originally saw this plant in Denver botanical gardens along with the Thymus Coccineum and it looked great.I'll give it another 6months.
from Boyds MD
