I have white and purple yarrow. I bought some seeds on etsy (I know) that were suppose to be a perennial sweet allysum called basket of gold. Well, they weren't. I have to dig them all up this year and move them because not being a perennial sweet allysum they were planted in the wrong spot!! The flowers look like a gold yarrow, but the plant isn't as fine and feathery as my other yarrow plants, but look like they could be related. Do you know if gold yarrow tend to be more "hardy" looking? The plant definitely has a strong odor to it also. I've attached a picture of the leaves because it's too early for anything else.
Thanks for your help.

I have grown golden yarrow, and yes the foliage is coarser than the fine foliage of the white and pink varieties.
