White yarrow, known botanically as Achillea millefolium, is a perennial herbaceous plant native to Europe and Asia but widely cultivated across temperate regions for its attractive flowers and medicinal properties. Here's a care sheet to help you grow and maintain white yarrow in your garden:

Plant Overview:
- Botanical Name: Achillea millefolium
- Common Names: White yarrow, Common yarrow, Milfoil
- Plant Type: Herbaceous perennial
- Native: Europe, Asia

Light Requirements:
- Sunlight: Thrives in full sun.
- Ideal Conditions: Requires at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.

Soil Requirements:
- Type: Well-draining soil is essential. Sandy or loamy soil is preferable.
- pH: Tolerates a wide range of soil pH but prefers slightly alkaline conditions (pH 6.0-7.5).
- Amendments: Add organic matter (compost) to improve soil structure and fertility, especially in poor soils.

 Watering:
- Water Needs: Moderate water requirements; drought-tolerant once established.
- Watering Schedule: Water regularly during the first growing season to establish roots. Once established, water deeply but infrequently.
- Avoid: Avoid waterlogged conditions, as yarrow is susceptible to root rot.

 Fertilization:
- Fertilizer Type: Generally, yarrow does not require heavy fertilization.
- Frequency: Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring if soil is poor or plants show signs of nutrient deficiency.

Pruning and Maintenance:
- Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and prevent self-seeding.
- Cutting Back: Cut back stems to ground level in late fall or early spring to rejuvenate the plant.
- Division: Divide clumps every 2-3 years to maintain vigor and prevent overcrowding.

 Pests and Diseases:
- Pests: Relatively pest-resistant but can occasionally attract aphids or spider mites. Treat infestations with insecticidal soap if necessary.
- Diseases: Generally disease-resistant but may develop powdery mildew in humid conditions. Ensure good air circulation around plants.

Additional Tips:
- Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around plants to retain moisture and suppress weeds, but keep mulch away from the crown of the plant.
- Support: Tall varieties may benefit from staking to prevent flopping, especially in windy locations.
- Propagation: Easily propagated by division or by seed sown in early spring or fall.

Landscape Use:
- Garden Beds: Ideal for borders, cottage gardens, or naturalized areas.
- Pollinator Friendly: Attracts bees, butterflies, and beneficial insects, making it valuable for pollinator gardens.
- Medicinal Use: Yarrow has medicinal properties and is used in herbal remedies and teas.

By following these care guidelines, white yarrow (Achillea millefolium) will thrive and provide beautiful, delicate white flowers atop fern-like foliage. It's a versatile and low-maintenance addition to any garden, bringing beauty and beneficial wildlife to your outdoor space.
