Dividing Yarrow

katefisher(Z7_NorthernCA)May 24, 2009

I have two Yarrow plants planted in our yard. They have become very good sized and I want to dig up, divide and transplant after they bloom which should be in a few days. If I do this will they in theory bloom again this year or that's it until next spring?

Thank you.

The best time to divide yarrow is in fall or very early spring. Achillea 'Moonshine' which is just coming into bloom now in my garden, is best divided in fall since it blooms so early in spring. And, it's a clumper that gets woody over time, so it must be divided to keep it vigorous. Most other yarrows are slow spreaders and bloom somewhat later. I divide those in early spring by just digging into the side of the plant and lifting what I want.
