Yarrow


Notes: Used for centuries for medicinal purposes, these plants produce clusters of tiny pink flowers, on soft, lacey, aromatic foliage. Excellent for use in fresh or dried flower bouquets and grows well in poor dry soil. Herbal tea from the flowering plant can be made to treat colds, fever & indigestion. Yarrow has also been noted for its use in slowing external bleeding when leaves are crushed and wrapped around the wounded area. Native Americans depended on it for all of the above and more. Easy to grow.


Instructions: Surface sow. Germination is 10 to 15 days


History: Dried yarrow was among several medicinal herbs found during the excavation of a 50,000-year-old Neanderthal grave in Iraq. Also known as bloodwort as it was used to heal the wounds of soldiers in the Trojan war.


Medicinal: External application of the plant is beneficial for wounds and nosebleeds. It can also be used as a mouthwash for inflamed gums as the plant's essential oil contains an anti-inflammatory agent if taken when taken internally it may reduce fever by year-old perspiration.

Columbine Mix - Our Columbine patch was extraordinary this year. Now yours will be too! Early Flowers make a bold statement in beds borders, rock gardens and early bouquets. Grows well in part to full shade. Great selection for naturalized or woodland gardens. Gorgeous!   Sea Holly - Vibrant silver-blue foliage with metallic blue seedpods that sport radiant spiny bracts. Excellent in cut flowers & dried arrangements. Cut before they fully open as these will continue to open in the drying process. Hanging them upside down to dry ensures weaker stems do not flop over. A great conversation piece for a dinner bouquet or garden focal point. Long grown in seaside gardens for its salt tolerance. Deer resistant.   Lychnis - This perennial forms dense clumps of silver-white foliage and multi-branched, gray-green stems and produces masses of deep to moderate pink blooms for much of the summer. They are very drought tolerant and are known to be deer resistant.
