Jersey Wildflowers: Yarrow

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a perennial plant found commonly throughout the island, notable for its feathery leaves and clustered, flat heads of flowers present in the summertime.  The plant is well-suited to drier and grassier habitats and therefore flourishes in wayside ground and hedgerow banks.  Being highly ornamental and rather aromatic, cultivars of the species are also often planted in gardens.
