Item added to cart!

Oertel's Rose Yarrow is a basal-clumping herbaceous perennial with delicate, aromatic fern-like foliage.  Flat clusters of magenta-pink flowers on stiff stalks rise above the foliage in summer.  An excellent cut flower that retains color when dried.  Heat and drought tolerant.  Prefers full sun and well-drained soils. 

Yarrow has a high reputation for its various medicinal uses and is often used in teas.  It can be used to treat colds, fevers, anti-inflammatory, and digestive health. It can also be used as a topical ointment for quickening the healing of wounds.  Not recommended during pregnancy*
