This native white yarrow has fern-like foliage with white, compact flower heads. It spreads by rhizomes and seeds. Use at low rates in mixes as it can become aggressive at high rates. This flower is most commonly used to add diversity to native plantings or create pollinator habitat. However, it also has uses as medicinal herb, ground cover, or for erosion control. It prefers full sun to partial shade and is very drought tolerant.
