Achillea millefolium

Common name yarrow
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers various colors (ours are purple-pink)
Size 2 ft
Light full sun
Cultural notes not fussy

Lovely ferny foliage is among first greenery to reappear in spring. The flowerheads in various shades of purple appear in summer. Spreads by roots. Grow in poor soil to keep this tendency in check.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
