Yarrow is an excellent drought-tolerant medicinal and pollinator plant. It is a well-known first aid plant used for cuts and scrapes. It slows bleeding and disinfects the wound. The flowers can be used as a tea to break a fever and induce sweating.

Yarrow also makes an excellent hydrosol (think rosewater but made with yarrow instead). It contains blue azulene oil, a super healer for inflamed or irritated skin.

Flowers can be white or light pink, although they are usually most pink when they are just opening.

Yarrow is not picky about soil. It is native to North America, and is tolerant of dry and compacted soils.

Please note that there will be some plant matter (chaff) with these seeds. 

50% of sales from this variety go to Sovereign Seeds, an Indigenous-led initiative dedicated to the revitalization of Indigenous seed and food sovereignty in so-called Canada. 

Growing Instructions

Direct sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring.

Shipping in Canada 

We ship seeds in Canada via regular letter mail, which is an untracked service, and usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. Larger bulbs and plants are sent via tracked flat rate box.


Shipping to the US

We ship all US orders by tracked packet and they usually take two weeks to arrive.

According to the USDA, most seeds require an import permit to be brought into the US and the permit is free and useable for multiple orders/years. The package will list the contents as "Garden Seeds". In our experience shipping seeds over several years, most small orders will make it across the border without issues, but occasionally they will be held at US Customs. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the required import permit and Cicada Seeds will not be responsible for any orders held or confiscated by US customs.
