So all, except Coronation Gold, of my yarrow is lying on the ground and the new growth is growing upward putting a nasty bend in the stem. Since I sell cut flowers it is a real pain. My question is, if I can get it tied up and trimmed back to below the bent stems, will it give me another flush of blossoms or will that be it? I don't want to do it unless I may get more flowers this summer yet but next year I will put rings on all of it. I'm talking a 50' row of yarrow.

Mine fell to the ground and was laying all over the other plants. I figured this plant is not for me, I dug it up and tossed it into the trash. In a flower bed it is a pain because it just does not behave it self. LOL. Hopefully you can find something just as pretty, yet easier to deal with.

Hilarious! unfortunately, I have a messy garden so it's just par for the course. I am trying to get better at putting rings around things but since I have so many it's a matter of which ones get it first. This is the first year I actually put stakes in around my zinnias and roped them to keep from flopping. Yarrow is just to great of a filler flower to not have and I have shades of purple, reds, cream, yellow, and now white! Guess I'll try cutting back a couple of plants first and see how it works.

This was my first experience with yarrow and I did not like it in the flower bed. If I had more space I would probably have several, but it was just not working in the flower bed with other plants. I was a total mess. Whistling

Yep, it is a flopper. Try to picture a 50' row of it, flopped over, next to a row of rudbeckia, all knocked over from the rain and wind and trying to walk down the 18" path between them! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing There are two or three mature Horehound plants at the beginning of the rudbeckia row and I don't know if you're familiar with them or not, but after they flower they turn into burrs and they spread just like the yarrow. So I'm kicking my way down the path, covered with burrs. I finally did cut the horehound so I could get to the first yarrow. It's a mess! If I get a spare hour or two I am going to cut back all the yarrow and try and tie up the rudbeckias. The grass will have to wait.

You can see the Coronation Gold but after that is the pastels. Those are the ones actually lying on the ground. If you look real closely you can see a tinge of pink right behind the yellow Hilarious!

Arlene, if mine flop I just mow them off. They'll bloom again in a few weeks. The ones I have that don't get any extra water don't flop as bad either, so if you have an empty spot in a dry area you might try some there.

Wow, that sounds like a great tip! Mine flopped real bad after a bad rain and they just never got back up! I did not know what to do with them and now I know.

All the yellow yarrows I've tried hae been floppers. Paprika is floppy this year for me too, but it's because it needs divided. I'm starting to think yarrows do best if divided every year.
