Western yarrow – Achillea millefolium

Yarrow is a popular landscaping plant sold in nurseries.  Our native yarrow has white blooms.  This perennial enjoys full sun or partial shade & can grow up to 3 feet high.  Its lacy, fernlike leaves add a deep green color to any garden.  Yarrow has been used for medicinal purposes because of its pungent oil.  It also looks good in dried flower arrangements.
