Yarrow is an attractive and useful wildflower, native to North America, Europe, and Asia. Commonly found on roadsides, clearings, fields, and other and mildly disturbed sunny areas. The pant can spread underground by rhizomes and grow in groups or as solitary flowers. Perhaps it's most well known use is as a medicinal herb, known historically to treat wounds, colds, stomach issues, and many other ailments. Yarrow is low maintenance, drought tolerant, and can thrive in hot, dry areas. As a common landscape plant, many multicoloured cultivars exist, but none are more recommended than wild yarrow for medicinal potency.

From June to September (depending on the area), corymbs of numerous white to pale pink flowers appear, attracting pollinators and beneficial insects. These beneficials include hoverflies, ladybugs, and predatory wasps. The leaves area uniquely dissected bipinnately or tripinnately so finely they resemble a fern or feather. The botanical name "millefolium" describes them meaning "a thousand leaves".
