- Yarrow, or Milfoil (Achillea millefolium) -

(Yarrow - 03)  In this bee's eye view of the yarrow flowers, we can see why it is a member of the composite family (according to several of our sources).  The little flowering "domes" are really composed of many individual flowers, each having four petals, a pistil and stamens.  The broad white petal-like structures that surround the flowering domes are most likely ray-flowers, though we could not confirm this in the literature.  The USDA classifies yarrow as a member of the aster family, with no explanation as to the reason.  Our other references indicate that asters are also members of the composite family.
