This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring. Position: full sun; Soil: well-drained, non-acidic; Rate of growth: fast-growing; Flowering period: May to August; Hardiness: fully hardy Noted for its uniform and prolonged flowering period, this bushy yarrow will certainly liven things up in a sunny border. Unlike many of the others, it holds its flower colour well, and as it is relatively compact, it is also excellent in pots. ‘Pomegranate’ is perfect too for the wildlife garden, as it will attract many beneficial insects, including bees, butterflies and hoverflies; Garden care: Protect from slugs. Stake using twiggy stems before the flowers appear. Cut back after first flowering to encourage a secondary flush in late summer/early autumn. Old clumps can be revived by lifting, splitting and replanting in spring.
