Stands up to a lot of abuse...

About Me Avid Gardener
I planted 2-3 of these yarrows last June. Then, I decided that I did not like where I planted them, so I uprooted them and moved them. They didn't like that very much, but they didn't thrive. They didn't die either. Then, One of them mysteriously disappeared. A nearby yarrow started to look ill. I thought it was the plants. I NOW know that gophers were eating their roots :-/All summer and fall, I watered them regularly. They did bloom, although not much, with kind of a dull orange bloom. They were very pretty next to the salvia reptans and the little night sage. I let them stand over winder and trimmed back this Spring. Even though we had a dry winter and I have not started running the drip system yet, the yarrows are already coming up. Even the one that I thought was completely gone due to the gophers is sprouting a little bit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Getting Started
Was a bit worried when they arrived. Looks "tired" to my beginner eyes but they sprung back and never looked back. I do NOT baby these plants, just put them some gravelly soil where I needed something and they grow and grow. Very pleased.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
