Zone 5b New Hampshire. I don't recall seeing anything else that looks like this thing growing anywhere around my property so I'm unsure if it's some kind of weed or perhaps something that could have carried over from a packet of perennial seed mix my wife had mixed into this particular flower bed last season.

Personally, I'm thinking its some kind of native 'weed' but figured I'd ask everyone what they thought before I yanked it out.Thumb of 2013-04-20/robertduval14/c52d2b

There is a wild white yarrow that is pretty aggresive but there's also some beautiful cultivated yarrows.It might be worth the wait to see if it's one of those Green Grin!

good enough for me...ill let it keep growing and see what turns up. If it is Yarrow, it picked a great spot in the bed to sprout as it is not crowding or being crowded by anything.

Thanks!

I have the plentiful white, and it can be quite enjoyable.


I don't find it terribly difficult to contain in my climate, although it usually requires a bit of thinning . Smiling

That is a beautiful combination Chelle! I think the white may be a little more aggresive here but the flowers are very pretty and I do use them for dried flower wreaths.

Ma Nature gets the credit for this one. All I did was leave it be.

Oh, that is lovely, Chelle! May have to try me some of that white yarrow! Do you have it's proper name?

Nope, I don't know its name. But I have plenty if you'd like some. I'll be thinning one patch very soon...maybe tomorrow.
