Easy to grow from seed, Golden Yarrow requires minimal care once established. Simply sow the seeds in a sunny location with well-drained soil, water sparingly, and enjoy the enduring beauty and ecological benefits this delightful wildflower brings to your garden.

Location: Choose a location with full sun to partial shade. Golden Yarrow thrives best in full sun.

Soil Preparation: Ensure the soil is well-drained. Golden Yarrow prefers sandy or rocky soils but is adaptable to various soil types, including poor soils.

Sowing Seeds:

Direct Sowing: Sow the seeds directly outdoors in early spring or late fall. Scatter the seeds on the soil surface and lightly press them in without covering them too deeply, as they need light to germinate.
Indoor Starting: For an earlier start, sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Use seed-starting trays filled with a seed-starting mix. Press the seeds lightly into the surface and keep the soil moist until germination.
Germination: Seeds typically germinate within 14-21 days. Maintain a consistent moisture level in the soil during this period.

Transplanting: If starting indoors, transplant seedlings outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. Space the seedlings 12-18 inches apart to allow for adequate air circulation and growth.

Care Instructions:

Watering: Once established, Golden Yarrow is drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering. Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot and other fungal diseases.

Fertilizing: Golden Yarrow generally does not require fertilization, especially if planted in nutrient-poor soil. Over-fertilization can cause the plants to become leggy and weak.

Mulching: Apply a thin layer of mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Avoid mulching too close to the stems to prevent rot.

Pruning and Deadheading: To encourage continuous blooming, deadhead spent flowers regularly. This will also prevent self-seeding. In late fall, cut back the stems to about 1-2 inches above the ground to tidy up the plant and prepare it for winter.

Pests and Diseases: Golden Yarrow is relatively pest and disease-free. However, it can occasionally be affected by aphids or powdery mildew. If necessary, treat with insecticidal soap or a fungicide.

Dividing Plants: Every 3-4 years, divide the plants in early spring or fall to rejuvenate them and prevent overcrowding. Dig up the clumps, separate them into smaller sections, and replant them in a suitable location.

Special Considerations:

Deer and Rabbit Resistance: Golden Yarrow is generally deer and rabbit resistant, making it a good choice for gardens in areas with these pests.
