- Yarrow, or Milfoil (Achillea millefolium) -
(Yarrow - 06a) In this side view of the yarrow we have a good look at the arrangement of the stems, leaves, and corymbs. Yarrow is a perennial herb that produces one to several stems (8 to 16 inches tall, though we've seen taller ones) from a fibrous underground horizontal rootstock (rhizome). The USDA says that it is known to be both native and introduced. Leaves are evenly distributed along the stem, with the leaves near the middle and bottom of the stem being the largest. The leaves have varying degrees of hairiness (pubescence). Leaf blades are lance-shaped in outline, but are finely divided. Overall leaf dimensions range from ¼ to 1¼ inch wide by 1¼ to 6 inches long. The flower heads (inflorescence) have a flattened dome shape (with approximately 10-20 ray flowers. The flowers are whitish to yellowish-white. The plant commonly persists from May through June.
