Pink Yarrow

Why does my pink yarrow turn white? It was so pretty for 2 or 3 weeks and now is turning white. It's spreading and is otherwise very healthy looking. Do we need to feed it something like maybe Hollytone?

Hi Gaby,
I'm afraid that's just what it does...kind of fades. :(
You can't really change that. You can try to deadhead frequently, to encourage new pink blooms. Although Yarrow does have a more finite bloom period than some other flowers, you should be able to keep it going, just more sporadically than the first flush.
