We have a 1 acre hillside in Southern California, and every year the wild
grass and weeds grow 4 feet tall before I can mow it in the summer. I am
thinking of seeding this area with White Yarrow. Although there is a
sprinkler system, the area gets very dry in the summer. Would the Yarrow
look nice for a hillside? I don't have any experience planting Yarrow
seeds. I heard it can be invasive, but in this case that is a desireable
quality if it looks nice. However if it does not look nice then that could
be a nightmare.
Once upon a time according to local legend, one of the residents of the
complex in which I live introduced a single yarrow plant into his/her
garden. From that single plant, it has spread over about half the
complex, which is about 5 blocks in size. I'm not sure how long it took
for the yarrow to do that. Maintenance keeps it quite short, and I
think it is attractive that way, especially on our 'little hill'. It is
very tough, and it is my understanding it grows well in a variety of
climates, including dry ones. However do not underestimate the meaning
