Yarrow is one of those plants that give a wildflower look to any garden. In fact, it is indeed a native plant and, predictably, it's easy to care for. In some gardens, it will thrive with almost no care, making it a good candidate for naturalistic plantings in open areas and along the edges of wooded or other wild places.
Its colorful, flat-top blooms rise above clusters of ferny foliage. The tough plants resist drought, are rarely eaten by deer and rabbits, and spread moderately quickly, making yarrow a good choice for massing in borders or as a groundcover. If deadheaded after its first flush of blooms fade, yarrow will rebloom. If left to dry on the plant, flower clusters of some types provide winter interest. Flowers of yarrow are excellent either in fresh or dried arrangements.
The spiky leaves of daylily provide a dramatic contrast to the ferny foliage of yarrow. Both are tough plants for hot, sunny locations.Penstemon
Like yarrow, penstemon performs best in well-drained soil in a sunny location. The long spires of tubular beard tongue flowers pair nicely with the mounded form of yarrow.Salvia
The deep blue and purple blooms of perennial salvia look great with gold, yellow, pink or apricot-colored yarrows.
