Yarrow, Milfoil

Soft rosy-pink flowers begin in late spring and attract butterflies. The soft fern-like foliage forms a dense mat that looks great especially if spent flowers are removed. Flowers can be used fresh for arrangements or harvested and dried for later use. This tough, floriferous beauty is a must for every perennial border, with very few pest or pathogen problems.

Interesting Notes

One of the Galaxy hybrids developed in Germany by crossing A.taygetea with A. millefolium. Soft, luxuriant, mat-forming foliage is similar that of A. millefolium, but with larger flowers and sturdier stems. This hybrid is known as A. 'Apfelblute' in Germany.
