Description from Prairie Moon Nursery: Among the most familiar blooms in the summer countryside are the long-lasting, flat-topped white blossoms of Achillea millefolium, Common Yarrow.  Yarrow species grow globally throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Species introduced by early European settlers of North America have spread widely. Widely found along roadsides and in open fields, this Aster-family plant is easily identified by its feathery, fine, almost fern-like leaves. Many butterflies are attracted to Yarrow nectar while numerous species of moths and beetles use the plant as a larval host. Maxing out at under 2’ tall, plants spread by rhizomes and prefer well-drained, medium-to-sandy soils. Many cultivated species of Yarrow, featuring a range of flower colors, are commercially available today.
