Plant Characteristics: Red Yarrow, also known as Achillea millefolium, is a perennial herbaceous plant native to North America, Europe, and Asia. It belongs to the Asteraceae family and is prized for its feathery, fern-like foliage and clusters of tiny, vibrant red flowers.

History:
Red Yarrow has a rich history steeped in folklore and traditional medicine. It has been used for centuries by various cultures for its purported medicinal properties, including its use as a remedy for wounds, fevers, and gastrointestinal issues. In addition to its medicinal uses, Red Yarrow has been valued for its ornamental beauty and is often cultivated in gardens for its vibrant flowers, which attract pollinators like butterflies and bees.

Culinary & Medicinal Uses:
While primarily grown for its ornamental value, Red Yarrow also has some culinary and medicinal uses. The leaves and flowers can be used to make herbal teas or added to salads for a pop of color. Medicinally, Red Yarrow is believed to have anti-inflammatory and astringent properties and has been used in traditional herbal medicine to treat various ailments, including colds, flu, and digestive issues.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Red Yarrow is a hardy perennial that thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant once established and is suitable for xeriscaping or low-water gardens. Plant seeds directly in the garden in early spring or late summer, as Red Yarrow prefers cooler temperatures for germination. Space plants about 12-18 inches apart to allow for adequate air circulation and growth. Once established, Red Yarrow requires minimal maintenance, making it an excellent choice for beginner gardeners or those looking to add a splash of color to their landscape.
