Achillea filipendulina

'Gold Yarrow', also known as 'Fern Leaf Yarrow', is a hardy perennial that have upright, clump-forming plants with fragrant, fern-like foliage. Beginning in early June, it develops tall, up to twenty-four inch, stalks with large, golden-yellow flower clusters. Along with attracting various pollinating insects in your garden, the cut flowers make attractive and interesting additions to fresh and dried floral arrangements.

Regularly removing the fading flowers also encourage continued blooming. Since they do grow tall, if you are growing them in loose, rich garden soil, you may need to stake them. Once they are established, 'Gold Yarrow' is quite heat and drought tolerant.

Thought to be native to the Caucasus, Iran and Afghanistan, it has been domesticated and is now found worldwide. A perennial plant that thrives in USDA zones 3 to 9. Refer also to its medicinal cousin, 'White Yarrow'. Each packet contains 0.1 gram, which is approximately 600 seeds.
