White yarrow, also known as Achillea millefolium, is a perennial herb with a long history of medicinal and culinary use. It is native to North America, Europe, and Asia, and is often found in meadows, pastures, and along roadsides. The plant grows to three feet tall and has feathery, fern-like leaves that are about three to four inches long. The flowers, which bloom from June to September, are small and white and grow in clusters at the top of the stem.

 How to grow

Choose a location with well-draining soil and full sun. Yarrow can tolerate some shade, but it prefers sun. Sow your yarrow seeds in the spring or fall. If you're sowing in the spring, wait until after the last frost. If you're sowing in the fall, do it at least six weeks before the first frost. Prepare the soil by removing any weeds or rocks and loosening the topsoil. Sow the seeds thinly and cover with a fine layer of soil. Water gently. Keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate, which should take about 10-14 days. Once the seedlings have grown a couple of inches tall, thin them to about 12 inches apart. Yarrow doesn't require much maintenance, but you should water it during dry spells and fertilize it once a year in the spring.
