- Yarrow, or Milfoil (Achillea millefolium) -

(Yarrow - 02)  In this photo we can get a closer look at how several flowering stem branches form a relatively flat-topped corymb.  The yarrow escaped from cultivation after its importation from Europe where it was used as a medicinal plant.  The yarrow's scientific name "Achillea" comes from the legend that Achilles discovered its healing properties and used it to treat the wounds of his soldiers at the siege of Troy.
