Plant Description and Details

Frilly, low-growing green foliage sends up long-blooming clusters of white to creamy and pinkish flowers. Well-suited to an open area that needs to be filled in with ground cover. Yarrow spreads by roots and seeds to form a mat offoliage that can be used as a light-traffic lawn alternative. A good choice to hold soil in place on slopes. Native Americans used as a poultice and for tea.
