Scientific Name: 
Achillea Millefolium
The Yarrow is an standing, flowering plant that produces one to several stems. The leaves which almost apprear feathery are arranged spirally clasping along the stems. The flowers that bloom to a flat-topped cluster are white to pink, and they produce a strong, sweet scent, similar to chrysanthemums. The plant commonly flowers from May through June in the temperate regions of the Northern Hempisphere, and it is frequently found in the mildly disturbed soil of grasslands and open forests. In much of the South, it is called 'Plumajillo' or the Spainish word for 'little-feather' and has been used in the past for stanching the flow of blood from wounds. Photo by: D. Griffin
