Achillea millefolium (Common Yarrow)
Delicate, fern-like foliage on the Common Yarrow adds a soft texture to a garden. It produces white flower clusters.
Common Yarrow does best in medium moisture soils in full to part sun. Deadheading (removing spent blooms) will promote additional blooms. It makes a lovely cut or dried flower.
Yarrow works well when planted en masse, used as a border plant, ground cover, in naturalized or perennial gardens as well as in containers.
