Achillea millefolium, commonly known as yarrow, is a hardy herbaceous perennial that is native to Europe and Asia, but has become naturalized throughout much of the world. It features finely dissected, fern-like, aromatic leaves and bears flat-topped clusters of small, daisy-like flowers in shades of white, pink, yellow, and red from late spring through to late summer. Yarrow is a versatile plant that is easy to grow and can be used in a wide range of garden settings, from wildflower meadows and cottage gardens to formal borders and herb gardens. It is also a popular choice for use in dried flower arrangements. Yarrow prefers full sun and well-drained soil and is tolerant of drought, making it an ideal plant for hot and dry conditions. It is also attractive to bees and butterflies, making it a valuable addition to pollinator gardens.
