 I have some Yarrows in my garden. According to  crossword clue solver  website, a Yarrow is an ubiquitous strong-scented mat-forming Eurasian herb of wasteland, hedgerow or pasture having narrow serrate leaves and small usually white florets; widely naturalized in North America.  Other varieties of yarrow flowers are pink, red, and yellow.  I only have the white ones.
They are beautiful in bloom, the only problem with this kind of plants is that it would took over  the space of other plants that is growing near it.  So I have to constantly thin  them out.


  1. I planted the white yarrow in my garden not realizing that it is an invasive plant! I have had the yellow and pink yarrow, so thought nothing of it! Pretty, but it will grow where you don't want it to!

    1. That's my problem too Paula and they are hard to get rid of but it is a good one to put at the side of the fence where you don't want the weeds or grass to grow.

  2. Good to know. Thanks for an informative post♫♪

  3. I didn't know what those were!

  4. Lovely flowers, no doubt. But i wonder what kind of scent it has? And i do love the leaves...

  5. It looks quite like some prairie plants I have growing from the last tenant here in Madison, WI. They were a bit scrubby coming up (no one has thinned them in FOREVER, so that's my task our first fall here), but they were surprisingly lovely blooms, once they overcame their shyness. Thanks so much, first time here via ABC. Peace, Amy Barlow Liberatore

  6. it's a pretty flower. it looks familiar--i've seen something similar in the wild.:p

  7. I learned something ! I didn't know the name of this flower, lol !

  8. Great shots of the beautiful yarrow. I have a lot of varieties but they are getting fried by the heat. Carver ABC-Wed. Team

  9. Dear Rose,
    I am not very good at gardening, but this sure looks interesting. The flower made it all beautiful.

  10. A beautiful plant, but dominating the rest of your garden, must keep you busy!

  11. I only have white yarrow too, - I do like it but find it invasive so I keep an eye on new ones popping up.

  12. I see that so many places - now I know what it's called!
