(Achillea millefolium) Perennial. Native. The fern-like foliage of white yarrow produces aromatic clusters of showy, flat-topped, white flowers that last for months in the garden.
As an herb, Yarrow has historically been used for healing wounds due to its astringent nature and richness in vitamins and minerals. It is also thought to be effective in lowering blood pressure, restoring appetite, and aiding in the treatment of colds and fevers.
A good choice for formal rock gardens, perennial borders, or as a reliable groundcover, especially in hot, dry sites. Blooms June to September. Makes a beautiful dried and cutflower.
