Plant Facts

Scientific Name Achillea filipendulina
Principal Common Name Yarrow
Common Name(s) Fernleaf Yarrow
Description This plant grows 4ft. high, and the foliage, though fern-like, has an untidy appearance, from the irregular way it grows. The flowers are somewhat singular, arranged in corymbs of a multiplex character; they are very large, often 5in. across. These "old-fashioned" flowers will last for several weeks after being cut, and even out of water for many days.
