I purchased some yellow yarrow for my garden. Unfortunately the flowers are now brownish in color. Am I doing something wrong?

I think that they are just going to seed.

Welcome to NGA, @MsKim !

I agree with Caroline -- assuming the flowers were yellow to begin with, they do turn dry and brown once they are "done." Smiling
