Yarrow : Achillea millefolium
In some circles, yarrow is considered a “dynamic accumulator”; it roots deep, pulling up nutrients to build soil fertility.
Tall and erect stems support compact clusters of tiny whitish flowers while lacy, fern-like leaves breeze below.
Yarrow is sun and drought tolerant, making it a good option for open sky yards. It also grows well in moist, filtered light.
Its ethnobotanical history is rich.
