Butterflies can’t resist White Yarrow with its dense clusters of pretty, white flowers atop highly aromatic, fern-like leaves. Native throughout North America (except for the driest desert areas), yarrow tolerates heat plus low or high humidity. This versatile plant can be grown for cut flowers (up to 24 inches in height) in a garden or meadow planting where it attracts pollinators. Or it can be grown and regularly mowed short (3 to 4 inches) as a drought tolerant, low maintenance lawn substitute that tolerates moderate foot traffic (after becoming established). Evergreen in non-frost areas, White Yarrow is fast growing, has a root structure that stabilizes disturbed areas to help prevent erosion on slopes, and has fire retardant qualities. It is adaptable to all types of soils (including well-drained clay, saline, and sandy soils) and will tolerate deer and air pollution too. Plants form a thick mat and spread by rhizomes and self-seeding. It is classified as “California Friendly” by California Water Agencies and is recommended as a low water user in landscapes.
